Is This Trip for Me?

Approximately 8,000 wildebeest are born every day during the peak calving season from early January to late February. The calving season also introduces a host of predators looking to make a quick meal of the vulnerable calves. It’s during this time when the southern Serengeti and western Ngorongoro Crater host the highest concentration of predators in Africa at a given time.

Lion, hyena and cheetah show up in large numbers to patrol the grasses, waiting for the perfect time to make a kill. But an easy kill isn’t always guaranteed. Female wildebeest instinctively know to head to the short grass plains so that they can see approaching predators. There they form a barricade around birthing mothers to protect them and the young when they are the most vulnerable, during birth – ensuring the majority of the young survive.

Nature is bound to take its course as survival of the fittest comes to the fore, watch as the wildlife action unfolds before your eyes.
