Photos: Kenya’s wildebeest migration begins amid COVID-19 - Hindustan Times

Due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) restrictions, a modest number of wildlife enthusiasts gathered in Kenya's Maasai Mara National Reserve to witness the wildebeests (Connochaetes taurinus) migrate to greener pastures, between the Maasai Mara game reserve and the open plains of the Serengeti. Foreign visitors were considerably low this year as Kenya had shut down international flights in March and only resumed them on August 1. Kenya’s current coronavirus tally stands at 26,436 cases and 420 deaths. The government is currently working on strategies to revive the tourism sector amid the coronavirus crisis.
