During June – July, the wildebeest encounter their first major challenge in their quest - the Grumeti River. When the river is dry it is reduced to a series of pools and the herds easily pick their way between the crocodiles and hippos in their depths. In wet years, the wildebeest are forced to plunge headfirst into waters inhabited by some of Africa's largest crocodiles.
Come July – September, the herds head north towards the lush plains of the northern Serengeti and the Masai Mara. Therefore the next stage of spectacular river crossings takes place at the Mara River any time between July and October. Hundreds of thousands of wildebeest may congregate on the banks of the river, and gaze dreamily at the green grass on the other side, anticipating their move.
Over the vast open plains of the Serengeti and deep rolling hills of the Masai Mara, the largest herd of animals on the planet move in a never-ending natural pattern in order to find food for survival. This exceptional natural phenomenon is renowned as Africa’s greatest wildlife spectacle. The thundering hooves of the herds and the enormous clouds of fine red dust they leave in their trail have become an icon of the East African Safari.
