Annually, millions of wildebeest and thousands of zebras and gazelles migrate from Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park to Kenya’s Masai Mara. They cross the Mara river which is normally full of hungry crocodiles ready to feast on the unlucky guests. These animals move for a couple of reasons among which are better weather and healthier food. This is the greatest animal migration on earth. It is for this reason that some call the Masai Mara the eight wonder of the world.
