Camera: Canon EOS 450D (Canon Rebel XSi 12.2MP); Lens: Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM; Focal Length: 400mm; Aperture: f/11; Shutter Speed: 1/200; ISO: 400

Location: Grumeti Game Reserve lies along the northwestern border of the Serengeti National Park. The reserve, covering an area of 2, 000 square km, forms part of the larger Serengeti/Mara ecosystem, where the wildebeest migration occurs between July and October.

Unrestricted movement of the migratory herds is essential for the continuation of the Serengeti/Mara ecosystem. Grumeti Game Reserve, which was gazetted in 1994, is one of a handful of buffer zones established in recent years to provide a series of corridors for the vast herds of migrating wildebeest and zebra.

Grumeti, together with the Ikorongo Game Reserves in the north and Maswa Game Reserve in the south, now act as buffer zones to protect the main Serengeti National Park from encroachment.
