The  Migration


     The migration of the major herbivores of the Serengeti is one of the most amazing ecological events on Earth. Between 1.2 and 1.5 million animals (wildebeest, zebra, and several species of antelopes, see Serengeti Ecosystem) make the circular tour  each year. The Serengeti area is about 200 miles in the north-south and east-west directions. Predators, which do not migrate with the herds, take advantage of their passage through their territories, but must make do with leaner pickings during the rest of the year.
