- The Artist
Each year almost one million Wildebeest and Zebra follow the rains across the Serengeti plains in Kenya and Tanzania
The wildlife on the Serengeti birth their young in January and February right after the rains turn hundreds of square miles green with new grass.They then follow the rains south and then back north for a constant supply of grass for their young .It's an annual circuit called the "Great Migration Route", and each year ,it's most dramatic moment is the crossing of the Mara river with it's huge,hungry crocodiles. It's been several years since we visited the Serengeti and we had forgotten it's vastness and it's beauty. Very different from Southern Africa ,our usual "haunt".
