Every year, during the period of January-March nearly 1 million wildebeest congregate on the plains of the Ndutu and Serengeti plains to give birth to approximately 400,000 calves. Making this a wildlife spectacle not to be missed. The abundance of game and fresh births attracts many predators, including lion, leopard and cheetah and therefore providing for an abundance of fantastic wildlife and photographic opportunities.
This 11-day/10-night Tanzania Wildebeest Calving & Big Cat Photo Safari, hosted by professional wildlife photographers Andy & Sarah Skinner takes in a selection of Tanzania’s most prolific wildlife areas and focuses on the areas where the game is most plentiful at this time of the year. Including the Ndutu Plains, the best area for where the wildebeest migration is located at this time of the year and the location for where the annual calving occurs. Together with a visit to the central Serengeti where the mighty granite kopjes rise from the plains and provide a great vantage point for the local lion prides. This safari also features the newly accessible location of the Soit le Motonyi region in the south east part of the Serengeti. An excellent wildlife rich location, far from the busier Serengeti transit areas, and where you are able to find something untouched, wild and spectacular. An area that has fast gained a reputation as a hot spot for the big cats and especially cheetah.
