Grumeti River - Back to the Serengeti

Drone filming on the Grumeti river Serengeti TanzaniaWhat an amazing opportunity to be able to go back to the Serengeti again, this time to the more northern area and film around the Grumeti River.

This area has patches of forest, and large open plains, and is well known for the massive crocodiles that predate on the wildebeest as they migrate across the river.

"I'm going to use every shot! Thank you guys."
-- Billi-Jean Parker (producer)

On their northward trek toward the Masai Mara, the wildebeest face another formidable river: the Grumeti. This majestic river winds its way through the otherwise parched plains, creating a belt of lush, green vegetation.

This was the perfect location to capture unique aerial views of a unique landscape and the mysterious creatures that live here!

It was such a privilege to film the endless herds of wildebeest as they made their way through this treacherous landscape on their ongoing search for fresh grazing.
