BEST MONTHS IN TANZANIA
February is one of the best months to witness the migration of the wildebeest in the Southern Serengeti Plains for this is the time of the year for the spectacular calving season where more than 8,000 calves are born everyday over a 2 week period from mid February. This also represents an amazing opportunity for lurking predators.
June marks the end of the rainy season and this is the time when the young calves gets stronger and the adults more mobile as they push north towards the Grumeti Reserve where the front herd reaches the Mbalageti River in June while the tail end are still in the Lake Magadi region or on the southern side of the Nyamuma and Simiti Hills.
July is the beginning of the mating season as well as the start of the Mara River crossing. As the dry season approaches, the first herds pushes past the Mara River and into the Masai Mara National Park while the majority will be waiting for their turn in the Northern Serengeti region.
WHERE YOU SHOULD BE

With some number of animals "trapped" within the crater, this is a consistent spot for year-round big game viewing.
Click Here To Read More Perhaps the most dramatic and documented region of the Great Migration and the stuff of National Geographic documentaries. Each year from late June, the first herds will attempt to cross the Mara River followed by thousands behind. Not all will survive. Some will drown, many will perish under the stampede and some will be victims to the crocodiles and for those who makes it to the opposite bank, it is just another obstacle completed.

When calves are born, it is the perfect opportunity for predators such as lions, hyenas, leopards, cheetahs and the endangered African Wild Dog to demonstrate their hunting might. Lots of blood shall be spilled.

There will be thousands of wildebeest and zebra herds that will be diverted to the northeast by sheer choice or through confusion and with rich flat grassy plains, a perfect platform for predators to run and run they will, to hunt down the next meal.
