Reflecting life on the


The wildlife began moving before first light, seeking food, dodging predators, or cautiously approaching water. Hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, zebras, gazelles and other colorful and exotic creatures restlessly mingle as they sense a change in the air. Calving season is nearly over, and millions of animals are slowly joining together to seek new places to graze. The great Serengeti migration is beginning. How they know the proper times and routes is still a great mystery.

As they begin, hoof beats drum the earth, dust begins to rise, the grunts and bleating of the animals fill the air, and birds explode into the sky, startled from their rest in the trees. Not tens, not hundreds, but tens of thousands of wildebeests, zebras, élans, and countless other species come alive and begin moving, tracing patterns embedded long ago in animal memory. Tour members begin filming fascinating scenes, capturing images that reflect life on the Serengeti, once in a lifetime images of one of the most magnificent displays of wildlife imaginable, undisturbed by human presence. The animals gather and begin to move. The great Serengeti migration is underway, and before it is finished, the animals will travel more than 1800 miles round-trip. It is one of the most remarkable natural events on earth.
