This is our typical Wildebeests Calving Safari in Northern Tanzania including a visit to the Ndutu Plains in south of the Serengeti National Park. The package takes 8 days in Tanzania including the the arrival day and we have included the Tarangire National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater in order to give you a variety but also to breakdown the driving into manageable distances.
Every year between November and December the Wildebeests Migration herds after returning to Serengeti from the Masai Mara, cross the Central Serengeti and cross over to Ndutu plains an area that is considered South Serengeti but administratively under The Ngorongoro Conservation Area for their calving season. This breeding season in the Ndutu plains goes on for a period between December through the month of March.
Best Time for the wildebeests calving safari – December / January to March 2018
The breeding and calving season sees literally tens of thousands of young wildebeests foals born by the end of the season with hundreds if not thousands born daily. The calving season sees the area buzzing with wildlife activity as many other animals, the predators and scavengers alike engage in a rare feast of easily attainable placentas and poor young ones that stray from their mothers. Many other big game animals follow the migration herds making Ndutu a place to be.
For this calving season in Southern Serengeti in Tanzania we customize safaris that include Ndutu, for both camping and lodging calving safaris. There is only one real ‘lodge’ there; and that is the Ndutu Safari Lodge which is also famous for its free roaming spotted genet cats. Recent years has seen the establishment of quite a few permanent tented camps, both standard luxury and the up market/ deluxe camps, as well as a few mid range tented camps. We have a selection of many seasonal camps also that we deal with for the calving season safari.
On the next tab is our sample safari for the Wildebeest Calving Safari Migration for the year 2017 – 2018. We are already taking bookings for the next calving season safaris in Tanzania for dates starting December 2017 to March 2018.
