Ndutu Calving Safari – Tanzania

Witnessing new life as it gets used to its surroundings in unadulterated nature is an experience not many are fortunate to have. This is your chance to be one of the lucky few! Embarking on this calving safari lets you experience the Tanzania’s true, natural essence.

The annual migration of herds of wildebeest and zebra can be experienced in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in northern Tanzania. We take you through to Lake Manyara and the area of Karatu. The sights are figuratively set alight as these spectacular sights are viewed among the vast, volcanic Ngorongoro Crater.

Your base will be the Ndutu Safari Lodge, located in the conservation area. You’ll be treated to open safaris as this location joins the central Serengeti and Tarangire National Park. Thousands of wildebeest, zebra, and antelope partake in this migration, and predators are guaranteed to follow in their wake.
