About the Wildebeest
The Wildebeest migration takes place in an extremely rich
contiguous and self sustaining Masai Mara Serengeti
Ecosystem. The self sustainability has earned it label
of the only "true ecosystem"
on earth. The Masai (Maasai)
Mara magic is attributed to its panorama.
From the vantage of rounded hills, the large expanses
grassy plains teaming with herds of animals resemble a
canvas painting. The overwhelming population and the rich
species presentation is mesmerizing.
