February is the easiest month to predict where the migration will be in the Serengeti.
Weather and wildlife
February is calving season – a period when wildebeest, zebra and other migratory animals give birth to their offspring.
Once the calves are born, the herds don’t move much.
The chance of witnessing a wildebeest birth is high. Predator interaction is also very likely, as lion and leopard move into the region to prey on young and vulnerable calves.
Where to stay in February
The migration has been in and around Lakes Ndutu and Masek for the last 10 or 12 years. It might have varied by 10 or 20 kilometres, but without fail the wildebeest herds gather between Matiti Hill, Ndutu, Naabi Hill, the Goll kopjes to the east and Olduvai Gorge.
You can book your Ndutu accommodation well in advance with peace of mind, for a migration safari to the Serengeti in February.
