A million wildebeest… each one driven by the same ancient rhythm, fulfilling its instinctive role in the inescapable cycle of life: a frenzied three-week bout of territorial conquests and mating; survival of the fittest as 40km (25 mile) long columns plunge through crocodile-infested waters on the annual exodus north; replenishing the species in a brief population explosion that produces more than 8,000 calves daily before the 1,000 km (600 mile) pilgrimage begins again.

HIGHLIGHT OF THE TRIP
Great Migration Calving Season
The calving season of the wildebeest great migration is a crucial phase in the life cycle of these animals. It usually takes place between the months of January and March, as the wildebeests gather in the southern Serengeti plains. This is the time when the nutrient-rich grasses are at their peak, providing an ideal environment for the pregnant wildebeests to give birth.
As the pregnant wildebeests begin to drop their young, the Serengeti plains are transformed into a nursery of new life. The sight of thousands of wildebeest calves stumbling to their feet and taking their first wobbly steps is a sight that warms the heart and captivates the imagination. These vulnerable youngsters are born with an innate instinct to keep up with the herd and evade predators from the moment they enter the world.
