A small portion of the Whitebearded Wildebeest migration-#1: Early morning, as far as the eye can see they are wending their way in a continuous trek, anticipating where the rains will be falling that bring up the young grass shoots, of which they are so fond. The migration inscribes a 1500-mile ovoid, that starts in --and returns to--the southern plains of the Serengeti (the word means 'Endless Plains'): Tanzania in late January & February, in July-August, it will cross the Mara River to graze in the Masai Mara (Kenya). Thus, their migration inscribes a rough ovoid of about 1500 miles. It has been a continual process of seeking grass & water, and breeding, by the over one million individuals, since the pleistocene 10,000 years ago. [Serengeti, Tanzania].
