The great wildebeest migration starts as the animals seek fresh rain-ripened grass and a reliable water supply. It is hard to believe that over a million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra will be on the move, and no drought, gorge, or crocodile infested river can hold them back. Their migration is as older than the history of mankind.
But despite the apparent intensity of the phenomenon, it is actually a fairly slow trek. Not all the animals will make it to journey’s end, but their sacrifice fuels other parts of the food chain, turning the circle of life.
The park boasts superb game viewing all year round, a huge predator population and varied birdlife. You will have no difficulty seeing the Big Five here. As the sun goes down and many animals are finding a safe place to sleep, others are waking in anticipation of hunting under the cover of darkness. On a night safari, prepare yourself for a whole new world to open up; see for yourself the big predators hunting their prey, and meet close up the small nocturnal animals never seen in daylight.
