6 DAYS SERENGETI WILDEBEEST MIGRATION SAFARI
6 Days Serengeti Wildebeest Migration Safari
Ndutu is a famous birthing ground of more than 2 million animals, wildebeests, Zebras, Thomson Gazelles, and Grand Gazelles of the Great Serengeti-Mara ecosystem. It lies south of the Serengeti National Park, an important site as this is where the wildebeest calves are delivered and nurtured over the nutrient-rich grass to gain the necessary energy to complete the 500 km migration circuit for the next generation. An approximated total of 400,000 thousand wildebeest calves is delivered in a short 3-week window. The newborn calves make this place a hunting ground for hunting lions, opportunistic hyenas, and the stealthy leopards looking to make a quick meal of the newborns.
Ndutu is the focus of our safari, however, your experience won’t be limited to only this place. We have planned visits to the Tarangire National Park and Ngorongoro Crater which are full of wildlife for us to observe and admire the stunning migration of various kinds of animals.
This itinerary suits all types of travelers; it is great for family vacations, couples, groups, and even solo travelers
