Discover Africa: World’s first wildebeest migration webcast

The ‘world’s first live web broadcast of the wildebeest migration’ being broadcast from Maasai Mara showcases one of nature’s great spectacles.


For the past week wildlife enthusiasts across the world have been savouring every moment of the rare opportunity of watching Kenya’s wildebeest migration being broadcast live online.

The broadcast is the “world’s first live web broadcast of the wildebeest migration,” HerdTrackersaid.

The migration is considered one of nature’s great spectacles and sees over a million wildebeest trek north from the Serengeti to the Maasai Mara. The wildebeests are joined on this epic journey by thousands of eland, gazelle and zebra as they cross the crocodile-infested Mara River to graze on the Maasai Mara plains.


The live broadcast ends today and viewers can still watch the wildebeests cross the Maasai Mara using Periscope, a live-streaming video app for Twitter, and YouTube’s Live Streaming service.

However, wildlife enthusiasts who missed the early parts of the migration or who are not able to view the live updates can still watch the replay action on discoverafrica.

Social media users can visit the Facebook and Twitter pages for updates on the remaining broadcast times and catchup on replays from the Maasai Mara.
