On this 6-day safari, the great migrating herds of wildebeests and zebras are situated at Lake Ndutu which is found in the Ngorongoro conservation area and a part of Serengeti eco-system and our main target is from Dec to April. From January it is the best time to witness the calving as they spread out across the short-grass plains and predators are just around waiting for their opportunities to make a hunt. You will experience both Tarangire, South Serengeti, Ngorongoro crater and Lake Manyara.
You will be picked up from the airport by a Bush and Forest Explorer representative and conveyed to your
accommodation in Arusha where you will overnight, relax, and prepare in anticipation of the
adventures to come.
In the morning you start your ndutu calves safari and you will be collected from your lodgings in Arusha by our safari guide. We set out for Tarangire National Park on a good tarmac road across gently rolling Maasai plains with scattered acacia trees. As we zip along we pass many Maasai in their colorful dress walking on the roadside, riding bicycles, herding cattle and driving donkey’s carts. Tarangire National Park, well known for its large elephant herds, is also
host to a multitude of other creatures. From the open roof of our state of the art safari jeep, we experience the seasonal swamps, savanna and life-giving Tarangire River, endeavoring to encounter a multitude of creatures, from zebra to wildebeest, buffalo, elephant, and giraffe, to name a few. It is possible we will glimpse lion stalking prey or leopards watching, relaxing in the trees above. After our extensive game drive experiencing the varied sights and sounds of the wilderness, we drive to your accommodation for dinner overnight.
South Serengeti ( Ndutu)
After breakfast, we will head to the Lake Ndutu region, situated in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a sublime landscape of the southern Serengeti ecosystem. The drive takes approximately 3 hours, taking us across the beautiful landscape of The Rift Valley Lake Ndutu, alkaline like most of the other Rift Valley is frequently inhabited by a wide array of wildlife. with appetites sated, undertake our game drive in the Ndutu region. The majority of the wildebeest migration can normally be found on the short-grass plains from December to
April. After the late afternoon game drive, you will drive to your accommodation for dinner and Overnight.
South Serengeti (Ndutu)
After our hearty breakfast, we head out to enjoy a full day game drive in the Ndutu region. We endeavor to explore the range of different habitats found here that include swamps, woodland, soda lakes, and the world-famous Serengeti short grass plains. We will see the awesome sight of the great thronging herds of wildebeest and zebra. During a short time frame around January, normally lasting for about 3 weeks, the majority of the wildebeest calves, dropping in the region
of half a million young in this awesome act of synchronized birthing. The sea of grass provides little cover and the young Wildebeest calves can run minutes after they are born and within 3 days they are normally strong enough to keep up with the herd. As our full day of adventure upon the ‘Endless Plain,’ we depart to our accommodation for dinner and Overnight.
Ndutu - Ngorongoro
After breakfast, we head out for an en-route game drive through the Serengeti. We may, with lady luck on our side, spot all of the “Big Five- across the ‘Endless Plain’ to The Ngorongoro Crater. This UNESCO world heritage site formed millions of years ago with the massive explosion of a volcano once higher than Kilimanjaro is 610 m deep and covers roughly 304 square kilometers. Due to its dense animal population of approximately 25 000 ungulates, the Crater offers the best game viewing. On our ndutu calves safari We will arrive at the Crater rim before lunch. with our overview of the spectacular landscape that spreads out before our eyes stored in our memories
and memory cards, we descend the bumpy winding track that brings us onto the Crater floor and, very quickly, we will be able to see wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, elephant, perhaps our luck,
black rhino through the grass. After lunch and a full afternoon inside the Crater, we head to accommodation in Karatu for dinner and an overnight.
Manyara - Arusha
After breakfast, we drive to our final destination on this ndutu calves safari – Lake Manyara National Park. This, a relatively small but diverse park, 120km west of Arusha, is so named for the shallow salt lake that covers some seventy percent of the surface area, flooding and drying
with the seasons and home to thousands of flamingo and in the extraordinary region of 500 other bird species. On our exploration of the park we will see monkey, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, elephant, and, with some luck, lions lounging in the trees. The park is known for its diverse landscapes; not only open grassy plains but also primate-filled woodlands and baobab dotted cliffs. After lunch, we head back to Arusha where we will arrive in the late afternoon, our
adventure at its inevitable end, with all the sights and sounds of wild East Africa tucked away in our mind for our adventure in life’s journey.

June to August. In late June and July, the migration moves into north-western Serengeti. Thus, these are the best months to see the migration in the western region of Serengeti. And, in August you can see the Great Migration in northern Serengeti.
It is stupendous to see hundreds of thousands of animals moving all together. Because so many animals rely on wildebeest and zebra for food, the Migration attracts many other species while moving through the landscape, making for unique sightings of diverse species
Serengeti is a huge national park so we would recommend minimum four days in order to properly explore it and find the wildlife. Being so large, you do need to spend time driving around looking for the Big Five, which takes time. Plus in four days you'll experience different weather and a variety of safari experiences
