Time for wonderful dreaming! Where would I want to be in the world coming fortnight?
Off to see The Great Migration from Tanzania into Kenya.
One of the greatest spectacles in the natural world: the migration of over two million herbivores with about 200 000 zebra and 500 000 Thomson’s gazelle behind the main players… 1.5 million wildebeest!
Each year the troupes gather up their young and start their long trek from Tanzania’s Serengeti Plain, further north to Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. They follow the rain, in search of food and water. Their journey runs clockwise and the animals cover a distance of nearly 3000 kilometers.
One of the most spectacular sights is when the herds cross the Grumeti River (Tanzania) and the Mara River (Kenya) from July through September. Not without danger; crocodiles are lying quietly in the water waiting for the weak and feeble animals that can’t cope with the strong currents or lose their mothers.
A very tough journey.
Wonderful Wednesday is a biweekly series of places, festivals, destinations, hikes, etc etc where I would like to be in the world the coming 14 days, if no restrictions would apply.
