Wildebeest Migration in the Serengeti

 

As the Northern Illinois Study Abroad students made their way to Musoma on Sunday afternoon, part of the 13-hour journey took them through Serengeti National Park. Because of the late rains in Tanzania this year, students witnessed the great migration of wildebeest heading north towards Kenya. Nearly 1.5 million wildebeest and about 400,000 zebras migrate annually following the rains in search of green vegetation and fresh water. The two cars of students, Dr. Thurmaier and Fa. Leo Kazeri were stopped by the migration just long enough to take a couple photos and videos.
