Most of Africa’s wildebeest population migrates on a yearly basis crossing rivers and large distances. Today this amazing process will get shown on an online basis as the herbivorous animals make their critical journey.

This is an exciting time to be alive. Africa’s wildebeest will be migrating across various obstacles such as waterways and the world can see them on their journey live on the Internet. Normally, wildebeest migrate on an annual basis across the plains of Africa for the sheer sake of good old survival. 

Their number is close to a million. And they are joined by half a million gazelle and 200,000 zebras. The tedious trek is from Serengeti (Tanzania) to the Maasai Mara (Kenya). It roughly covers a thousand miles of territory replete with hazards.

But it is worth it in the end since the wildebeest enter fresh grazing ground at the denouement of their journey. All wildlife junkies will be able to follow the exciting and interesting trip of these gentle animals across the African savannah on YouTube or Periscope.

All they have to do is register their name and data on HerdTracker. They will get prompts regarding the timings of the trip that will be telecast live to their mobile phones or tablets.

There will be live commentary by wildlife experts on the wildebeest as they make their way across the Mara River. Here there are more than a hundred bloodthirsty crocodiles. And they are waiting to pounce on any helpless wildebeest that falls a prey to their razor sharp jaws by sheer chance and bad luck.

But that is not all the trouble they have to court in their quest for nutrition. Once they enter the Maasai Mara, fierce lions, fast cheetahs, dangerous leopards and tenacious hyenas await them.

By the end of October they will make their way back and then the journey will begin all over again. According to Guardian, Kenya is sponsoring the whole thing since it is a boom for the tourism of the nation. The only difference is that this time many people around the world will get to see the scene from the comfort and safety of their living rooms.

All they will need is an Internet connection. The whole thing reminds one of the Disney animated movie titled The Lion King. It is indeed a rare peek into the “circle of life” as it occurs throughout the natural world.
