Speaking about the initiative, TikTok’s Content Operations Manager for Africa Boniswa Sidwaba said, “We are delighted to partner with Kenya Tourism Board, IFAW, and Conservation International to bring the Great Migration and the topic of wildlife conservation to our global community. Through TikTok’s LIVE feature, we hope to bring this global phenomenon closer to everyone around the world, connecting people with a shared passion for wildlife, nature and conservation.”
The Great Wildebeest Migration is often branded as Africa’s biggest wildlife event and happens annually due to the change in seasons initiating the migration of animals, mostly wildebeests, from Tanzania’s Serengeti to Kenya’s Masai Mara.
