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

HerdTracker update 08 Jan 2020 by Serengeti Nomad

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.

The nearest accommodation to the herds: Ndutu Safari Lodge, Ngorongoro Crater Tours

Recommended safari: Ngorongoro Crater Game Viewing and Calving Safari in the Serengeti
