MASAI MARA NATIONAL PARK, Kenya (CNN) -- Tens of thousands of Kenyan wildebeests are on the march again, bound for the grasslands that are their source of food.

The annual trek is made despite its inherent dangers, which include crossing the crocodile-infested waters of two rivers. Many of the wildebeests die in the crossing.

Nature lovers consider the wildebeest migration one of the greatest shows on earth, and thousands of tourists travel to Kenya every year to witness the spectacle.
