5 Days Mid-Range Safari – Ndutu Calving Season

Code: EMT-5Mid-Range
5 DAYS - 4 NIGHTS

5 Days Great Migration Mid-Rage Safari – Embark on a Tanzania safari and explore the great wildebeest migration during the calving season with Ernest Magic Tours. Estimates are that 1000 wildebeest are born a day! While lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena and wild dog certainly eat their fill of these gangly baby gnus, the synchronized calving is an effective survival mechanism for the species, there is simply too much food for the predators to consume. This Tanzania safari will be unforgettable.

This Best Tanzania safari can start from JRO or Arusha.

Trip Type: All of our safaris in Tanzania are private, ensuring that you will get the most out of your experience in Tanzania.

Best time to visit: late December to early March

If you have more time, considering pairing these Tanzania safari tours with a thrilling climbing Kilimanjaro tour, or a relaxing beach holiday to Zanzibar to add to your Tanzania Vacation!

Day 2: Arusha – Ndutu Area

We’ll get an early start this morning to begin our wildebeest calving safari, driving west through the world-renowned Ngorongoro Conservation Area and stopping to take a peek at the volcanic caldera of Ngorongoro Crater along the way. After about five or six hours on the road, we’ll reach the Ndutu region, which lies at the southern tip of the Serengeti. Ndutu is known for lush green plains dotted with flat-topped acacia trees, shallow alkaline lakes where flamingos and other birds gather in great numbers, and—of course—thousands of newborn wildebeest. We’ll keep our eyes peeled as we travel through the bush on our way to tonight’s camp, getting our first glimpse of the many young antelope hidden amongst the herds.

Day 3: Ndutu Area

Are you ready for a full day in the African bush? We’ll have the entire day at our disposal, affording us the freedom to roam far and wide across the lush Ndutu savanna in search of calving wildebeest and all of the other species you’ve traveled so far to see. We’ll keep a close watch for any predators stalking along the perimeter of the migratory wildebeest and zebra herds; Ndutu is an especially great place to find the cheetah, and the entire Serengeti is rife with lions and hyenas. We can either return to camp for lunch or select a scenic spot right in the bush to enjoy a picnic-style meal in the middle of the Tanzanian wilderness. These are the moments that make for an authentic safari experience; there’s nothing quite like digging into a packed lunch while massive herds of wildebeest and zebra mill about nearby. Later, we’ll return to the Camp for dinner and another night’s rest.

Day 4: Ndutu – Ngorongoro Crater

After enjoying a delicious breakfast, the morning will kick off with a thrilling game drive in the Ndutu area. You’ll have the opportunity to explore the rich wildlife and stunning landscapes. A half-day game drive will be followed by a picnic lunch amidst the wilderness. Later, we will divert our route towards the Ngorongoro Crater rim. The drive to the rim spans 75 km and is estimated to take approximately 2.5 hours, offering mild game sightings along the way. The Ngorongoro Crater is a remarkable geological wonder and a true haven of untamed wilderness. As the day draws to a close, you’ll savor a satisfying dinner and retire to your comfortable accommodation for a well-deserved rest.

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater – Arusha

After breakfast, we descend back into the crater for an early morning game drive, hoping the cool morning air allows for us to see some active wildlife. As the temperatures rise, we may head to the hippo pool to see these spectacular creatures enjoying a dip to beat the heat. As lunch approaches, we make our way to the picnic site on the lake, taking in the spectacular views and a bite to eat before you head out on the final game drive. After our last glimpse of the park, we head towards the crater rim to make the journey back to Arusha for the evening.
