The secret to a Serengeti safari is knowing where to be when, in order to enjoy the great migration at its best.
One of the most dramatic times to visit is from late January to March, in the southern Ndutu area, where an estimated 500 000 young wildebeest calves are born, at a rate of 8 000 a day during the height of the calving season.
This is one of our favourite times to travel. Here’s why:
- Brilliant photographic opportunities – these little ones are fascinating to watch, as they test out their wobbly legs
- Plenty of hunts and kills, as an abundance of predators move in to make a quick snack of the vulnerable calves
- Striking sunsets with fiery hues splashed across endless African skies
- Abundant wildlife as refreshing rains sweep across the dry savannah, transforming the landscape into rich, lush grasslands
Our intimate Ndutu Wilderness Camp is perfectly positioned in the heart of all this action. Here, you will find excellent food, welcoming staff and comfortable tented accommodation all at an exceptional price.
