Experience the first steps of one of nature’s most grueling and fascinating journeys as you witness the calving season. Calving season marks the beginning of this movement that sees millions of animals make the difficult journey from the southern Serengeti to the distant Maasai Mara.
On your four-day calving season safari you’ll visit Lake Manyara National Park, travel to the southern Serengeti to see the calving region of Ndutu, and finish your tour with a visit to the stunning Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
If your timing is right, you might even get to see the first steps of this vast herd’s northward movement.

About Calving Season (December to March)
Life begins for a huge number of animals in the Ndutu region that straddles the southern Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. In the space of a few short weeks, the calving season sees half a million young wildebeest brought into the world – with an average of 8,000 wildebeest born each day.
It is here that the vast herd begins to take shape, and it is here that the predators begin their yearlong assault upon the herd. With so many young and weak calves stumbling around, it becomes easy for the lions, leopards, and cheetahs to pick off a tasty morsel.
