Exceptional Experiences: The Great Migration In The Mara.
Human beings as well as animals are blessed with the skill of adaption and have perpetually applied it for eons that have passed and for many more to come. Every year, the Serengeti welcomes over 1.5 million wildebeests and hundreds of thousands of zebras and gazelles whose sole purpose for this migration is the dire search for pasture and water. It’s said that this large herd measures up to 40km in length. Amazing, right? Well, not quite. Even more puzzling is the question of how they decide on the path to take each and every season on repeat. Some speculation state that Wildebeests can feel the rain from 50 km away but the most logical explanation is that they follow the weather patterns and the growth of new grass along the way. As the great journey begins from Tanzania and cavalcades to Kenya ,the birthing plain in the Serengeti witnesses the birth of thousands of baby wildebeests resulting from the animals that mate on the move.
From the plains that are dubbed as the delivery ward of the Serengeti ,the animals move towards the Northern Tanzania as other animals join the large procession on its odyssey heading to the Mara In Kenya. They pass the Ngorongoro crater to the Grumeti river around the month of June.
August finds the large herd on the banks of the Mara River which is known as the Predator’s bay. This crocodile infested river hosts one of the biggest and vicious crocodile. Instinctively, when faced with danger, the probable solution one usually takes is either flight or fight. The procession stands at the side contemplating on how to cross the river bearing in mind the trap that lies ahead. As the animals begin their across the river you can feel all sorts of emotions coursing through your veins. One minute you are like a cheerleader at a game, rooting for their safe passage across .The next,you are in total awe, jaw on the floor as you witness the crocodiles tear up an animals gut and flesh ,gruesomely so. No sooner is that over than you find yourself back to desperately crossing your fingers for that baby zebra that’s a little too close to being chomped up by the crocodiles who are closing in on it. A pack of Zebras will probably protect it and once more you are struck by the wonders of the world and how humanity manifests even in the wild .
There are some things that leave impressions not so lasting as the imprint of an oar upon the water. But this is definitely going to leave an imprint on you. Forever.
