13th of February: Serengeti National Park – Ndutu Plains (migration route)

After breakfast at the camp, todays journey will take you to one of the most fascinating routes, the Ndutu Plains, Febraury is the calving season, thousands of wildebeests reach this area of short and nutrient grass to give birth, and obviously the area is plenty of predators.
The Serengeti extent for about 14.763 sq/km, it’s the biggest park of the country; This park hosts the biggest mammal migration in Africa moving each year around 2 million wildebeests, 1 million zebras, impala, gazelles for 800km. They migrate throughout the year, constantly seeking fresh gazing and better quality water. The Grummet and Mara rivers are the hardest points of the migrating movement, each animal driven by the same ancient rhythm, fulfilling its instinctive role on the inescapable cycle of life: a three week bout of territorial conquests and mating; survival of the fittest as 40km long columns plunge through crocodiles infested waters and hiding lions waiting for one wrong move. The precise timing of the Serengeti wildebeest migration is entirely dependent upon the rainfall patterns each year. The best time of the year is between November and July/ August with particular intensity between January and February, when the female wildebeests stops in The Ndutu Plains to give birth to their babies.
The wildebeest migration continues moving northwards during the dry season from July/August till October showing the last part of the migration.
Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably, the most scintillating game viewing in Africa;
