Not sure how they first got the reference to being clowns of the savanna, but some refer to them as such.
The blue wildebeest is not high on the wish list of first timers, nor is it the most majestic. Yet, think about it, when it comes to Africa’s main wildlife attraction it is, bar none, the Great Migration, where these animals are joint leading performers.
Over time, with more safaris under one’s belt, their appeal grows. And like each game animal of Africa, they have their unique qualities, which for the visiting hunter, very soon become an integral part of the species pursued.
There is a lot to go through in this edition of AHG Monthly, so I’ll keep my message brief.
But let’s pay tribute and respect to this rather unsung hero. A survivor, no matter how dumb we think they are, and diversely spread African resident.
Clowning around or not – let’s give the wildebeest an applause.
