Undeterred Perilous Crossing the crocodile infested rivers.  Many wildebeest loose their lives

The  annual Maasai (Masai) Mara /Serengeti wildebeest migration is not about wildebeests migrating per se but rather its influence on life on the whole ecosystem.  The migration is a natural phenomenon, a never ending milling of over 2.5 million wild animals comprised of about 1.7 million wildebeests, 800,000 common Zebras and gazelle, followed closely by their predators-lions, hyenas, leopards, jackals.   Hovering in the skies are thousands of vultures, the super predators. Patient in nature, the vulures survey the migrating herds descending on the dead carcasses reducing them to skeletons in a matter of seconds.  The hazardous crossing of crocodile invested Mara and Grumeti rivers is magical wonder of nature attracting thousands of human beings.  This survival of the fittest spectacle has been described at the “seventh wonder of the modern world”.  Strategic sighting of the migrating herds tend to influence the setting up of tourism facilities.
