Great Wildebeest Migration. I had planned my tour to coincide with the Great Wildebeest Migration in East Africa. My first fascination with the event is when I watched the migration documentary on BBC wildlife channels Big Cat Diary and decided to have first hand information about it. The love for wildlife conservation had drawn me to Serengeti-Mara ecosystem, the place where the migration occurs and the owner of the title “the seventh wonders of the world”. Every year, between the months of July to October, over a million animals migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. There is no where in the world where there is such an immense movement of animals.
The visit to Serengeti-Mara eco-system was a great eye opener to my ever cherished need of environmental conservation. I really admired this seven wonder of the world and saw the real need to conserve the environment. I could not help regretting that human beings have become so environment insensitive to a point f endangering other species. That experience has transformed me to a great campaigner of environmental conservation and wildlife preservation. The event helped me appreciate the importance of wildlife in God given world. It was indeed a memorable moment that will occupy a space in my mind in my life. Great Wildebeest Migration.
