Ndutu Ngorongoro Conservation Area — The extraordinary annual Wildebeests Great Migration of wildebeest and other grazing herbivores across the Serengeti ecosystem is one of the greatest spectacles in the natural world. Over two million herbivores partake in this journey, with about 200 000 zebra and 500 000 Thomson`s gazelle behind the main players... one-and-a-half million wildebeest! Essentially the wildebeest are taking advantage of the strongly seasonal conditions, spending the wet season on the Ndutu plains in the south- east, and the dry season in the woodlands of the north-west. However, the sheer weight of their numbers also plays an important role in shaping the environment to their needs. In November December, January February to March the Serengeti plains and the Ngorongoro Conservation areas in northern Tanzania are just buzzing with life, this is calving season. Most of the wildebeest calves are born in just a three week period, usually the beginning of February.

December


This is the short rains season in the Central Serengeti. As soon as the rains begin, the wildebeest herds will rapidly move as far south as possible in their inexorable migration in search of sweet, nourishing grasses and to prepare for the arrival of the next generation.

January


The wildebeest herds wait for the first Serengeti rains, and their movement depends on when the rains arrive in the southern plains. This triggers a swift migration, as with the rains comes the new growth of the nutrient-rich sweet grass that will sustain the pregnant females through calving and lactating. Movement is rapid, and the herds can move from Lobo in the north to Ndutu in the south in just a few days.

February


February heralds calving season in the Serengeti. This is your chance to witness wildebeest, zebra and other migratory animals give birth to their offspring. Predator interaction is also very likely, as lion and leopard move into the region to prey on young and vulnerable calves. Base yourself close to the Ndutu area for optimal viewing.

March


March is often a wet month, with the massive herds feeding on the lush, green grasslands. They move slowly as most calves are just one month old. Expect to see big cats in action as lion and leopard prey on these youngsters. A mobile camp in the Serengeti gets you a front-row seat to astonishing sightings.
