Wildebeest & CalfIf one were to look at a wildebeest by itself, one might not be completely impressed. They are less graceful cousins to the antelope, and kind of ugly.

So high, in fact, that the annual movement of one group of wildebeests in the Masai Mara has become one of the world’s most sought after natural spectacles.

This spectacle is known as the Great Wildebeest Migration, capital G, W, M.
