Unusual Animal

The wildebeest we saw were non-migrating and stayed permanently in Masai Mara Reserve.  Why is that?  Our guide said that it seems one of them decides to run and they all run and when they do, they form a long column.   They are part of the antelope family.  Both male and female have horns that are close together at the base but curve outward, inward and slightly back.  They require water and eat mostly short grasses.
