Is This Trip for Me?

This drive in safari is best experienced during the months of January to March, and ideally February when the calving season happens in the South of the Serengeti.

The Ndutu area is famed for its short grass plains which grow grass which is particularly rich in nutrients and sustains the migratory animals whilst they have their babies. Traditionally the wildebeest and zebra tend to calve on these plains with a peak around February which makes for a beautiful natural spectacle and some exciting predator hunting behaviors.

The Wildebeest continue to feed on the short grass plains well into March gaining strength for the long migration to the North following the rains and the new pastures.
