Our five-day Wildebeest Migration Calving Season safari combines visits to the Ndutu region of the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Tarangire National Park. Witness the birth of up to 8000 calves a day during this magical time for the Wildebeest Migration. The perfect safari itinerary for a visit over months of December to March, this is one of our biggest sellers. Safari concentrates on the migration tour in the southern part of the Serengeti and the northern part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NDUTU) will give you the very best game viewing full of adventure.

Breakfast and depart for game viewing with a collection packed lunch of A safari in the Southern Serengeti is all about seeing the Great Migration in action on daily game drives, whether it’s baby wildebeest being born and taking their first steps on the lush green plains in the early months of the year, or watching the vast herds on the move as they track their course northwards towards the Masai Mara. The Southern Serengeti is one of the places where you can see the full circle of the Great Migration: the herds returning to graze in December with the start of the green season, the birth of the babies in January and February, and the departure of the herds as the grass starts to dry at the end of the rains.
