A million wildebeest each one driven by the same ancient rhythm, fulfiling its instinctive rock in the inescapable cycle of life a frenzied three week bout of territorial conquests and mating, survival of the fittest as 40 kilometres (25miles) long columns plunge through crocodile-infested water on the annual exodus north replenishing the species in a brief population explosion that produces more than 8,000 calves daily before the 1,000 kilometres (600miles) pilgrimage begins again. Serengeti national park is the best place to visit especially for a game drive.
