The Great Wildebeest Migration in the region is mainly a result of a sole factor of the presence of grass to graze on. This, therefore, influences the circular movement of mammals in which they move toward the much greener areas with more pastures to graze on. However, the long journeys of over a hundred kilometers if fraught with danger since the mammals are exposed to predators such as lions, cheetahs, and crocodiles that hunt them down as they migrate. The Great Migration annual starts from the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in the southern part of the Serengeti National Park with the great numbers of grazers moving while looping towards the clockwise direction through the Serengeti National Park heading the north to the Masai Mara reserve in Kenya.
