Course Description

When world travelers think of the natural wonders of Africa, they think of great herds migrating across vast open plains shadowed by hungry predators. This popular image encapsulates the reality of East Africa and the annual wildebeest migration between Tanzania and Kenya. Every year, between July and October, the great herds of wildebeest, zebras and Thomson’s gazelles that spent the wet season on the shortgrass plains of Tanzania trek northwards to Kenya. As a result, there is a good reason why BBC, Discovery Channel, National Geographic, and PBS photographers frequently stalk these Kenyan hinterlands at this time of the year. The wildlife spectacles that unfold day after day are simply unmatched anywhere else on the planet – throngs of wildebeests crossing crocodile-infested rivers, elusive leopards skulking between sunlight and shadows, boisterous herds of elephants feeding in acacia thickets, and noisy clusters of wallowing hippos. Add to this elegant giraffes, secretive rhinos, tawny lions and countless colorful birds, and you have a wildlife extravaganza open to personal discovery and providing a lifetime of memories.
