Plenty of predators can be found year round in this area: Lion, Cheetah, Leopard, Serval, African Wildcat, Caracal as well as Hyena and many other smaller species – some easier to spot than others! The diverse eco-systems, from woodlands, to plains, to soda lakes, within the Ndutu area make it a unique place for bird watching.
The Ndutu area is the best place to be to witness the annual wildebeest calving spectacle. Once the rains start (usually late November), the huge herds make their way down from the Mara River to graze the short grass plains of the Serengeti. For up to five months of the year the wildebeest remain in and around this area, making it an excellent base from which to explore.
