Safari guide Micheal Thomas captured the great migration roaming in the Kakesio Area, Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Throughout January the Serengeti’s short-grass plains including the northern plains of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area are the place to be.

This is the peak of calving season. The herds move around the area following localised rainfall and are often stretched from an area called Maswa in the west to Gol in the east. It’s a vast area but historically the heart of this area - Kusini and Ndutu – has had good rain and historically focuses the herds. These two areas also host reliably brilliant general games throughout the month, including all the cats.
