The Calving Season in the southern Serengeti is in full swing

The Calving Season in the southern Serengeti is in full swing!

A big herd of the great migration was spotted moving towards the Kusini and Naabi Hill. However, some herds are still roaming on the open plains of the Ndutu and Gol Mountains.

Heavy rainfalls have stopped.

By January, most of the herds have congregated in the Ndutu Plains for calving season

By January, most of the herds have congregated in the Ndutu Plains for calving season.

Ndutu is in the Ngorongoro Conservation area which means rich, nutrient soils for the young calves to give them the best start in life. By mid-January, calving season is in full swing and more than 8,000 calves are born daily. Aside from the sheer volume of grazers in the area which is phenomenal to see in itself, the young calves also attract an immense number of predators. In fact, from January to February, the Ndutu plains has the biggest concentration of predators anywhere on the planet, which only means one thing; seriously explosive predator action.

Safari guide Filbert Mbise captured the great herds roaming in the Ndutu area spread out across the marsh area moving into the open plains of the southern Ndutu.

Great migration on the move following the heavy rains in the southern and eastern Serengeti

Safari guide Cr Ian captured the great wildebeest migration on the move following the heavy rains in the southern and eastern Serengeti.

However, a large herd of the great migration had been seen moving from Naabi Hill heading towards the Gol mountains. It is predicted that the great migration might arrive early than expected in the Ndutu area due to the heavy rainfalls.

Travelling to Tanzania during the calving season is a sight to behold and something unique to the region

Wildebeest migration towards the Naabi Hill from Masai Kopjes on the eastern side of the Serengeti

Yesterday, a huge number of wildebeest was spotted migration towards the Naabi Hill from Masai Kopjes on the eastern side of the Serengeti and Makoma Hill plains.

If you’ve ever wondered why nearly two million wildebeest put themselves through the ordeal of the migration every year, then the Serengeti calving season will show you why.

The southern plains of the Serengeti turn green after the November rains and fresh grazing is just what the wildebeest need for their energy-demanding calving season: several hundred thousand wildebeest are about to be born and it’s going to get busy.

The season is short-lived but epic in scale. In December, great waves of wildebeest come spilling out of the Masai Mara and into the southern Serengeti. The animals then fan out into adjoining areas such as the Ndutu region, Lake Masek and even the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

It’s an amazing scene, the last great concentration of large, wildland animals in the world, and the surrounding landscape is a beautiful one: short-grassy savannah studded with rocky outcrops – koppies, the favourite haunt of the Serengeti’s leopards.

Makutano crossing

Makutano crossing! One of the last crossings of the season.

Tucked into the iconic Kogakuria Kopje in the northern Serengeti, Lamai Serengeti commands never-ending views over the magnificent Mara River valley. Twelve carefully designed tents are split between two separate camps, the Main Camp and the smaller Private Camp. Constructed from a clever blend of canvas, ferro and natural poles, the tents boast spacious verandas spread amongst the rocks, each with exceptional views.

Cool off from the heat of the day in one of two natural rock swimming pools or lose track of time browsing through the fascinating contents of the library and map room. Cocktails are served in the convivial bar area, with cosy nooks hidden amongst the massive boulders. Game drives explore the magnificent wildlife

Great Migration is heading towards the central Serengeti

The Great Migration is heading towards the central Serengeti. However, there is still a good number of wildebeest and zebra in the Kogatende area (northern Serengeti). The crossing was captured at point number 7 when a large herd was grazing at Lamai Wedge slowing moving towards the Mara River.
