Calving season is in full bloom!

Calving season is in full bloom! The rains have fallen, and the wildebeest have officially started calving. Within a two-to-three-week time period, over half a million wildebeest are being born with as many as 8000 wildebeest being born on the same day. 

Returning to the roots of safari, where mobile camps move in symbiosis with the great migrations, the Siringit Migration Camp pairs five-star luxury with the classic mobile safari experience. Currently located in Ndutu, which is near the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Years ago, volcano eruptions within this area have allowed the land to benefit, after the volcanic ashes that were left behind led to nutrient dense soil and grasses – perfect for wildebeest calves! However, it is not only visitors who get to enjoy this spectacle of new life. With so many vulnerable calves around, come hungry predators. Many lions have been spotted and heard around camp this month. Afterall, the circle of life must move with the migration, too!

The rains have brought the thousands of migrating wildebeest, or ‘nyumbu’ in Swahili, down to Ndutu.


The herds of wildebeest will remain in the Ndutu area for a little while longer as the young wildebeest continue to munch on the nourishing grasses to build up their strength, learn to walk, run, and of course, learn the ropes of survival from their mothers who know most of the tricks that predators pull. 

Gradually, the migration will begin to head north towards the western corridor, where rains have allowed for more nutritious grasses. With the wildlife moving north, so will our Migration Camp, and in a few months you will find us located in our front row seats for the next phase in the migration cycle in Northern Serengeti.
