Wildebeest in Southern Serengeti for Calving Season

On the 13th of January, a traveller captured footage of the wildebeest during their calving season in the Southern Serengeti. In the video, you can see a Wildebeest calf being born.

Contributed by: Amelia (@ameilia.of.the.west)

From December to February it is Calving Season for the Wildebeest and the herds would be found in the Southern region of the Serengeti. Here vulnerable calves are hunted by predators, and only the fittest will survive. In late February, the wildebeest herds will continue on their journey North where they will be facing new challenges.

Crocodile and hippo interactions as wildebeest cross the Mara River in the Serengeti National Park

HerdTracker received these exciting images of a river crossing from visitors to the Serengeti yesterday, 24th October 2022.

“The crossing was from north to south across the Mara River in the Serengeti National Park. So the Tanzanian part of the system.”

The crossing was estimated at about 3000 animals. One killed by crocodiles. Two drowned. 

“We also saw a far smaller one just after this of about 500 animals and they crossed in a really bad place with 3 killed by crocodiles and probably 3 drowned, but we didn’t have a good spot for pics.”

This crossing was possibly one of the last at the Mara River for the year. From mid-to-end October, the wildebeest usually head South in search of greener pastures (literally), after spending the last few months grazing north of the Mara River in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve, and it’s surrounding conservancies.
