This Ndutu Migration Safari During Calving tour has been designed specifically to focus on and to increase your chance to see the great Serengeti wildebeest migration. The Southern Serengeti and Ndutu areas in Tanzania are the best locations for the months of January, February and March to witness thousands of wildebeest spread across the plains grazing on the rich short grass plains. Predator action is at its peak with great sightings of cheetah, lion, hyena and leopard and a very good chance to see adrenalin packed kills.
After breakfast, you’ll be picked up from your Hotel in Arusha and then transferred to Arusha airport for your short time flight (50mins) to Serengeti North Ndutu Area. Upon arrival, you will meet your driver guide for a full day game drive in Ndutu to view the migration. In the evening, we’ll drive to the camp for dinner and overnight.
Lake Ndutu area, situated in the Ngorongoro conservation area, part of the southern Serengeti eco-system. Lake Ndutu is alkaline, like most of the other Rift lakes, however, the water is still drinkable and used by a wide array of local wildlife.
