From January to March the Great Migration can be found on the southern plains of the Serengeti around Ndutu and within the Ngorongoro Conservation area. It is here that the wildebeest calve, usually within a 3 week period commencing in late January, with around 8,000 individuals being born every day. In turn, the predators gather, hoping for an easy meal. This area of the Serengeti hosts the densest concentration of predators in Africa at this time of year - from lion and cheetah to leopard and hyena.
Here we offer a selection of camps/lodges perfectly positioned to witness one of nature's great spectacles. It would be unrealistic to say you can get 'off the beaten track' at this time of year, but by staying in one of these camp you have more chance of getting close to the migration and spending your safari time with the herds at this time of year.
The Real Africa Trust works with leading conservation organisations to raise awareness as well as raising funds for specific projects. Partners include Save the Elephants, Save the Rhino, The Sheldrick Trust, Rhino Conservation Botswana and Animals saving Animals. You can find out more on our Conservation pages. On behalf of every client travelling, Real Africa makes a donation to the Trust. Sanctuary Kusini with the help of its guests is actively involved with the Serengeti Cheetah Project which helps monitor the demographics of the cheetah in the area - one of the last few remaining natural ecosystems where cheetah exist in viable numbers so if you select this lodge, you will be able to participate in the project yourself.Plan My Journey Speak To Us
