2024 & UPCOMING 2025 (2023) WILDEBEEST MIGRATION HERD TRACKING UPDATES FOR MASAI MARA IN KENYA



READ MORE ON MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE

Daily Tracker News On The Masai Mara & Serengeti Great Wildebeest Migration Herd For 2024

A large herd of wildebeest was spotted moving through the Moru region of Serengeti National Park.

Rain plays a huge role in wildebeest movement patterns, as heavy rainfall promises lush vegetation. The wildebeest herd, therefore, depends on consistent rain in the Serengeti and Mara to complete its migration journey.

This stunning video was taken on the 15th of April 2024.

Solitude! Pelicans enjoy cold feet and morning bath. The Wildebeest passing by on search for better grass, but decided shortly to take a morning spa in the mud. 😉

Three tips about wildebeests:

👉 Adaptability and Migration: Wildebeests are highly adaptable animals known for their remarkable annual migration. They have the ability to travel long distances in search of fresh grazing lands and water sources. Understanding their migratory patterns and routes can greatly increase your chances of encountering them in their natural habitat. Research the specific regions or national parks where wildebeests are known to migrate to plan your wildlife viewing accordingly.

👉 Social Behavior: Wildebeests are highly social creatures and are often found in large herds. They form complex social structures and exhibit fascinating behaviors, such as synchronized movements during migration and group defense against predators. Observing their interactions can provide a captivating wildlife experience. When encountering wildebeests, take the time to observe their behavior from a safe distance, as it can offer insights into their social dynamics and survival strategies.

👉 Ecological Interactions: Wildebeests play a crucial role in the ecosystems they inhabit. Their grazing habits help maintain the balance of vegetation, preventing the dominance of certain plant species and promoting biodiversity. Additionally, their movements and migrations influence the movements of other species, such as predators and scavengers. Understanding the ecological interactions involving wildebeests can deepen your appreciation for their importance in the ecosystem and enhance your overall wildlife experience.

These tips provide a general overview of wildebeests.

Every year, around 1.5 million wildebeest, 350,000 gazelles, 200,000 zebra, eland and other ungulates participate in what has been called the greatest show on earth – The Great Migration – in search of grazing and water. This typically occurs at the end of the dry season, wherein these animals head towards the western woodlands. .
When you encounter about 1.5 million animals across 4 species, moving in the search of greener pastures and fighting their way through hurdles big and small - hunting predators, absence of water, weak offsprings, and much more, you really start putting things into perspective. It is times like these when we realise the magnitude of the various natural phenomena that world has to offer! .

‘I wanted to depict the darker reality of the well-known wildebeest migration,’ says Simon. Returning after a stampede at first light he saw this pack of spotted hyenas gorging on the lifeless trampled bodies of those that didn’t survive. As one hyena momentarily broke from the feast, it gazed across in Simon’s direction.
In the surge to cross the Mara River the blue wildebeest struggle to climb the deep gullies they carve – many slip and perish under the hooves of those behind them. Spotted hyenas, with jaws powerful enough to crunch bones, will devour everything except the horns of their prey.
In a new guest blog series, #WPY52 Mammals winner Simon Stafford reveals what it was like to witness and photograph this natural phenomenon.

In this week’s #WPYinsights film, winner of the #WPY52 mammals category Simon Stafford explains the importance of observation in wildlife photography.
Getting to know your subject is a key ingredient in capturing natural behaviour and achieving unforgettable shots.
Simon`s winning submission depicts the darker side of one of wildlife`s greatest spectacles; the wildebeest migration of Kenya`s Masai Mara. Returning after a stampede at first light, Simon expected scavengers to be making the most of the grisly scene, and came across a pack of spotted hyenas gorging on the lifeless trampled bodies of those that didn’t survive. One of them gazed across in Simon’s direction, resulting in his category-winning image.
You can see Simon’s #WPY52 image in the exhibition at the natural_history_museum, London open until 10 September 2017.

Masai Mara is the most noted location of the wildebeest migration due to its famed Mara River crossings, and this has led to some misunderstandings about the migration itself. The migration is an ongoing movement of animals that takes place throughout the year. The migration occurs within an area that is known as the “Serengeti ecosystem.” The 40,000-square mile area is defined by Masai Mara National Reserve in the north and, in the south, Ndutu, Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Maswa Game Reserve in Tanzania. #masaimara #wildlifeindia #naturephotography #wildbeests #rivercrossing #masaimaramigration #kenyawildlife ...
