The Great Migration starts in July each year when well over one million wildebeest along with large numbers of Thompson’s Gazelle, zebra and other herbivores migrate from the Serengeti plains in Tanzania to fresh pastures in the north and then back south again in October.
Each year the annual migration is one nature's most eye-inspiring sights when millions of wildebeest and zebra in search of grazing and drinking water reach the Masai Mara from Serengeti and remain there until they make their long and arduous trek back "home" in that period it is like a walking buffet for the lions.
