Tanzania Affordable Calving Season Safari 2022


Safari: Tanzania

Tanzania Affordable Calving Season Safari 2022

Visit Tanzania during the calving season to see wildebeest calves join the massive herds making their way through the Serengeti for the great migration.

In January, February and March every year, an incredible 80% of wildebeest females intuitively give birth within the same two to three week period, before the great migration commences. The synchronisation reduces the possibility of tender wildebeest calves becoming easy prey. This Tanzanian Calving Season Migration Package is a definite must if you’d like to watch the migration from a different perspective.

Estimated cost per person for a 9-day safari like this, depending on the season. Can be customised based on your budget and requirements.
International flights not included.










Costing tip: When comparing with other companies, remember most of them only show the low season rate. How pricing works >
