per se but rather its influence on the movement patterns of the
other animals including human beings. The migration comprise
of the never ending milling of over 2.5 million wild animals
composed of a about 1.7 million wildebeests, and 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, they
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
