This diversity of ecosystems attracts a wide range of mammal, bird, and wildlife species. The park is also home to rare tree-climbing lions, which is a unique sight to behold. You can experience excellent game viewing opportunities here, with buffalo, impala, giraffe, bushbuck, waterbuck, hippos, and elephants roaming around.

Day 6: southern Serengeti-wildebeest calving at Ndutu /February-march

After you have finished your breakfast, you can drive to Ndutu and Serengeti southern part to witness the wildebeest calving. This natural phenomenon begins around January when pregnant wildebeest give birth, and by February, about 8,000 baby wildebeest are born every day. During this time, other animals are also present in the area. However, there are also many dangerous animals that come to hunt the young wildebeest, which are easier to catch. 

It is common to see predators like lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, black-backed jackals, and vultures during this time. It is also likely to witness a predator-prey interaction, which is great for wildlife photographers but unfortunate for the wildebeest. You can have a game drive around Big Marsh and Small Marsh in the Ndutu area, where you can enjoy your picnic lunch box from your lodge. Later on, you can drive to glamping tented lodge, Serengeti-ndutu glamping lodge, or Ndutu Lodge.
