Wildebeest calving begins on the southern plains of the Serengeti, TanzaniaPublished: 6th February 2017

The Great Wildebeest Migration has arrived on the short grass plains of south Serengeti National Park.  The vast herds are reported to stretch from Naabi Hill to Kusini, Hidden Valley and south towards Maswa.  Bang on que, it being the first week of February, the females have begun to calve.  An incredible 8,000 calves may be born each day over the next three or so weeks. 

This area of Tanzania during calving season is said to support the highest concentration of predators in Africa.

To see this wildlife spectacle next year please do get on touch with us to discuss the options. You may be interested to browse some of our sample 'Migration' fly-in itineraries. The Northern Circuit safaris which visit a number of attractions like the SErengeti and Ngorongoro Crater can also be easily adapted to spend time specifically in the southern Serengeti. Conversely if you are travelling later in the year we can advise on the best camps to catch the migration as it moves north - please do ask for details.
