5 Days the Great Migration Calvin Season Safaris
From US PP
Approximations are that 8 000 wildebeest are born each day – that’s 300 every hour! While lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena and canine surely eat their fill of those gangling baby gnus, the synchronized calving is an actual survival mechanism for the species: there’s just too much food for the predators to eat.
The wildebeest congregate within the Southern Serengeti Plains– the Ndutu Area and therefore the northern area of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA). they’re attracted by the abundant fresh grass on the fertile plains and therefore the calcium within the soil, which is important for growth and is transferred to the calves through the mother’s milk.

Day by day itinerary
Day 1: Fly Arusha – Lake Manyara Airstrip – Ngorongoro Crater – Game drive Sundowner + Cocktails.
It is one of the few places where the rare black rhino are often observed in their natural setting. As only a couple of animals migrate in and out of the crater with its 2000 ft. high walls, you’ll expect to determine lions, elephants, zebras, hippos, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes, many birds and other species. With slightly of luck the ‘Big Five’ are often spotted during one game drive only.Leave the Crater and drive towards the Ndutu plains to the Lush retreat for dinner and overnight at Lake Ndutu Luxury Tented Lodge.
Day 2: Witness the most amazing wildlife spectacle in Africa, the Great Migration-Sundowner + Cocktails.
Dinner and overnight at Lake Ndutu Luxury Tented Lodge.
Day 3: Southern Serengeti & Moru Kopjes to see Mammals & Big cats –Private Bush Dinner under the Stars.
We do an after breakfast game viewing drive sideways the Sogore River Circuit, which loops into the plains south of the Seronera River, and which is sweet for likely Lion, Thomson gazelle, topi, ostrich and cheetah sightings. The Visitor Center on the brink of the Serengeti Seronera Lodge and public campsites is well worth a visit after the morning’s game drive. This nicely designed centre offers some interesting wildlife displays also as a present shop selling information leaflets and maps of the world. The center also features a shop where cold drinks and snacks are often purchased, also as a picnic ground and knowledge trail up and around a close-by kopje. We will enjoy a relaxed picnic lunch at the middle within the shade of the enormous acacia trees.
In the afternoon we’ll follow the Kopjes Circuit, which matches anti-clockwise round the Maasai Kopjes, which typically attract diversity of lion and a few fearfully large cobras. Kopjes are weathered granite outcrops, dispersed round the plains, most of which are miniature ecosystems, providing shade and beverage in pools left within the rock after the rains. This makes the kopjes particularly good for spotting wildlife within the dry seasons – including lions, which wish to dwell await animals coming to drink!
