Imagine vast expansive plains with endless horizons, seas of pale yellow grass rippling in the warm breeze, gnarled acacias twisting to the sky and vultures circling on thermals overhead. Now imagine all of that plus thousands upon thousands of baby wildebeest and zebra.
The migrating herds generally start calving (giving birth to their young) in this month, so the plains are full of baby wildebeest, baby zebra and baby gazelles. This will happen in the far south of Tanzania, in the Serengeti National Park.
Subject of countless documentaries, the Serengeti is perhaps most famous for the Great Migration, which each year sees up to two million wildebeest cross the plains in search of good grazing.
