Witness one of the most amazing spectacles on earth:Wildebeests calving safari, visiting Ndutu Plains in Southern Serengeti for the breeding and calving season of the Great Wildebeests Migration herds.

Seasonal Departure Safari – (January to March)

This safari is aimed at the calving season when the massive herds of wildebeest arrive in the Southern most point of their migration over February and March.
