“They say that somewhere in Africa the elephants have a secret grave where they go to lie down, unburden their wrinkled gray bodies, and soar away, light spirits at the end could this place be Tanzania!”   The wheel of life in East Africa start to turn in the grass fields, next to Lake Ndutu, at the Southern part of the Famous Serengeti National Park. This is where the Zebra’s foals and the wildebeest calves that where just born, do their first steps and join the great migration in Serengeti. Now that their legs can carry them for long distance, they start migrating with their mothers towards central part of the park, on their way to the west & northern parts. While moving though the plains, they will have to face the predators that are waiting for them in the grass, waiting for the weakest or the one who lost his mother. This sights and sounds are something that no movie can capture – a piece of heaven on earth in Tanzania!
