What is there to see in the serengeti in february?
Each year, East African populations of blue wildebeest have a long distance migration. While it logically runs in conjunction with rainfall and related grass growth, their movement can vary dramatically among both the dry and wet seasons. Driven by availability of food and quality of water, the wildebeest endure a challenging annual journey across the Serengeti. To an observer, it may look chaotic and frenzied but the principle of ‘swarm intelligence’ allows the herd to overcome significant hurdles including river crossings and defence against numerous predators. They can also reach speeds of up to 50mph at full speed!
