One of the most spectacular sights of the Wildebeests Migration in Serengeti is when the herds gather to cross the Grumeti River (Tanzania) and crossing the Mara River (Kenya & Tanzania) from July through September. As the herds cross, crocodiles are lying in wait for any weak and feeble ungulates that can`t cope with the strong currents or lose who their mothers. But the river crossings aren`t the only spectacle. Just witnessing hundreds of animals on the plains is a sight in itself. Particularly because they attract many of Africa`s impressive predators. Lions, leopards, hyenas, and wild dogs follow the herds and give safari-goers excellent chances of seeing a kill in action.
