Wildebeest Migration in the Serengeti

Drone filming wildebeest migration in SerengetiWhat a privilege to film the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti using our octocopter drone! This was our first time in Tanzania, and we thoroughly enjoyed the people and the amazing landscape of the Serengeti.

Filming in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area with our 5D on our octocopter drone enabled us to capture some unique and breathtaking scenes!

"This footage is just incredible!"
-- Jess Reiss (producer)

Our bush camp overlooked Lake Ndutu, and the constant honking sound of the local flamingos lulled us to sleep every night. During our time on location, the camp was visited by elephant, buffalo and lion.

The unique landscapes surrounding the Ndutu Marsh, as well as the creatures that inhabit this area were our characters.

The wildebeest herds congregate in this area of the Serengeti during March to drop their foals, almost doubling the population of wildebeest in a matter of days! The rich grazing in the area ensures a good start in life for the new additions to the herd.
