Safari Description :

 

9 days Wildebeest calving safari experience ,tour starting from Nairobi into Amboseli National park at  the foothills of Mt Kilimanjaro for 2 nights at this park famed for large herds of elephants then into Tanzania parks in the northern circuit Lake Manyara national park , Serengeti National park and Ngorongoro crater respectively .

This 9 days Kenya Tanzania safari program is tailored to give more emphasis in wildebeest migration herds and calving in Serengeti and Ngorongoro conservations areas.

Then the calving begins from in January – February when the wildebeest give birth to some 8 000-baby wildebeest every day. The calving season carries on into March and is joined by other animals too. Tens of thousands of zebras and gazelles have accompanied the wildebeest on their trek and are taking advantage of safety in numbers to drop their young too.

Such numbers of young and inexperienced animals are of course a magnet for Africa’s predators. The big cats – lions, leopards, and cheetahs – stalk the southern Serengeti along with spotted hyenas, black-backed jackals, and African wild dogs. Your chance of seeing predator-prey interaction and indeed a kill are very high during the Serengeti calving season – great news for wildlife photographers if not for the wildebeest.

In Tanzania, Ngorongoro Crater is said to have the world densest population of lion. Serengeti is notable for its large migratory herds of wildebeest and zebras with strings of predators in trail. The Ngorongoro crater also offers amazing wildlife viewing and scenery
