Phunuru checked in from Ndutu, in the shortgrass plains of the eastern Serengeti. This is where all the animals of the Migration (especially the Wildebeest and Zebra) come to give birth each year. All total there are something like 2 million animals involved, and roaming the area are countless predators, who follow the herds waiting for such an abundance of food. Needless to say it is quite an amazing spectacle, reminiscent of what the Great Plains of the USA must have been like several hundred years ago with the herds of bison. Tomorrow the team will visit Olduvai Gorge, the site of many archeological discoveries. Then, they will go to Ngorongoro Crater, and take a nice game drive down to see the resident population of animals. So far so good in Tanzania!
