Meals

Breakfast, Lunch

8-days Great Migration Calving Season – The wildebeest migration is one of the greatest wonders of the world. Annually, animals migrate into Tanzania in large numbers. January to March welcomes the calving season in the Serengeti, when wildebeest are dropping their young across the southern plains and the Ndutu region of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The landscape is lush and green, wildlife is in its prime and the predators are up and about, with lion and cheetah being particularly active. If you don’t mind a little rain on your parade, this is a fantastic time for wildlife photography.
