They start at Serengeti in Tanzania. They move in huge numbers across the dangerous Masai Mara River, in Kenya which is full of crocodile in search of water and food. It is here that you get to witness the law of Mother Nature when it comes to food chain. As the wildebeest struggle to cross the fast moving river to reach the other side for food, hundreds of hungry crocodile a waits. Thousand of wildebeest died will crossing this river. Majority of them drown will other are eaten by crocodile. Don't forget hundreds of Lions, Leopards, hyena and other carnivorous a waits on the other side of the river.

It is a journey that has its danger but also a lot to see. You get to see more than a million wildebeest surviving. You've a chance to see pride of lions hunting for survival. Let us not forget the Zebras, antelopes, buffaloes etc.

What make the wildebeest special is their ability to detect Rain in the North and that is why they travel to Masai Mara in Kenya in search of pasture and water.

Now, there are three white rhino on planet remaining in Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Nanyuki, Kenya. The rhino that died on Sunday was called Nola. It was 41 years old. The three remaining white rhino are called Sudan 43 years, Najin 27 years and Fatu 13 years.

If you plan to have a Safari in Kenya, you must visit Ol Pejeta Conservancy and see this rare rhino that are nearing extinction. Efforts have been put to encourage mating at this conservancy to avoid a possible extinction but in vain.
The only hope lies on technology like stem cell technology or IVF to save this species. That is why  Make a Rhino, a campaign in GoFundMe is trying to raise $1 million towards all efforts to save the white Rhino.
