6 Day Ndutu Migration Safari Calving Season in southern serengeti 

During this fantastic 6-day Ndutu calving season safari, you'll get to see the incredible wildebeest and zebra herds during their special time at Lake Ndutu in the Ngorongoro conservation area, which is part of the Serengeti ecosystem. The main event we're looking for happens from December to April. In January, it's the perfect moment to witness something amazing – the wildebeests giving birth to their babies. They do this on the short, green plains, and there are predators like lions and cheetahs nearby, waiting for a chance to catch their food.
