Photographer's Note

Serengeti is a region of grasslands and woodlands in Africa shared between the countries of Tanzania in the south and Kenya in the north. The whole region is spread over around thirty thousand square kilometers. Eighty percent of this region lies in Tanzania.

It has more than 1.6 million herbivores and thousands of predators. Mostly found animals in this region are the wildebeests, gazelles, zebras and buffalos.

This area is most famous for the migration that takes place every year. Every year around October nearly 1.5 million herbivores travel towards the southern plains, crossing the Mara River, from the northern hills for the rains. And then back to the north through the west, once again crossing the Mara river, after the rains in around April. This phenomenon is sometimes also called the Circular Migration.
