A new kind of amazing race is coming to NatGeo: 20 people trekking hundreds of miles across Africa, following in the footsteps of migrating wildebeest.

Groundbreaking show follows a ‘human herd’ attempting to complete the world’s most famous animal migration across Africa


Mygrations follows the group as they use their expert survival skills to navigate without a map or compass alongside 1.3 million wildebeest on a physically and mentally punishing, six-week journey through the Serengeti to the Mara River.

As the migration progresses, the human herd of 20 will thin due to exhaustion, hunger or injury. The remaining group will fight their way to the finish — encountering mountains, rivers, deep ravines, impassable bogs and scorching plains. Beyond these fault lines, they must avoid countless predators lurking in the shade of darkness. Every day brings them closer to safety while testing the limits of the human spirit and capability in Africa’s most unforgiving landscape.
