Wildebeest migration safari calving season 5 days
Our five day Wildebeest Migration Calving Season safari combines visits to the Ndutu region of the Serengeti , the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Tarangire National Park . Witness the birth of up to 8000 calves a day during this magical time for the Wildebeest Migration. The perfect safari itinerary for a visit over months of December to March, this is one of our biggest sellers.
Life begins for a huge number of animals in the Ndutu region of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. In the space of a few short weeks, the calving season sees half a million young wildebeest brought into the world. This is due to the rainy season combining with the fertile volcanic soil of the region to create a lush carpet of short grass rich in essential vitamins.
It is here that the vast herd begins to take shape, and it is here that the predators begin their yearlong assault upon the herd. With so many young and weak calves stumbling around, it becomes easy for the lions, leopards, and cheetahs to pick off a tasty morsel.
