Wildebeast and Zebras
All over Northern Tanzania we encountered that unusual animal called the Wildebeast,
sometimes by the hundreds and the thousands. And wherever we saw wildebeast, we
saw zebra.
During our stay in the Serengeti we fortunate to see the migration of the wildebeast and the zebra. The wildebeast were
noisy and nervous in anticipation of the migration. We could hear them in our lodge day and night making their sounds
trying to organize for the migration. Frequently we encountered lines as far as the eye could see of wildebeast migrating
in single file. Sometimes they were going the wrong direction--south. On the last day we saw zebra migrating north.
According to our guide, the zebra are smarter and the wildebeast eventually follow them north.
