February is baby animal season in the Serengeti!

It’s perhaps the greatest spectacle of the Serengeti – the migration few know about. Millions of wildebeest, zebra, and antelopes gather in the southern Serengeti and Ngorongoro Conservation area to give birth to around 500,000 babies during this short calving season. The lush grass after the rains provides plenty of food for all these animals. It’s also a time of plenty for the predators who need to feed their own babies, so you can expect to see plenty of lions, cheetah and maybe even leopard cubs too. Travelling to the Serengeti during baby animal season guarantees exceptional game viewing. Your very comfortable mobile camp moves several times during the year to follow the migration so you will be in the middle of all the action! The spacious walk-in tents have proper beds and en-suite bathrooms, and the wonderful camp staff provide a fully serviced experience.

Tarangire National Park

This park is a little known gem which is often missed by visitors on their way to the Crater. It has the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti eco-system. Herds of up to 300 elephants gather here and migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala and eland can also be seen. And where there is so much wildlife you will also find the predators – lions, cheetah and leopard. The park is also a birders paradise, with over 550 bird species. Your delightful camp here is set in the shade of acacia trees close to the Tarangire River.  You’ll explore the swamps and woodlands in custom-designed 4×4 safari vehicles which are superb for game viewing and photography.

Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is part of the Serengeti ecosystem and adjoins the Serengeti National Park. The Ngorongoro Highlands presents a different side of Tanzania among the coffee farms before a dramatic descent to the game-rich Ngorongoro Crater, a World Heritage Site.

Another incredible and well planned African Encounters experience. The magic of safari accommodation where animals are free to wander through camp by day and night. To lie in bed listening to all the night sounds is breathtaking. The qualified and friendly guides sharing their knowledge and finding animals that we would never find or see, and talking about their lives is an experience we will never forget. How fortunate we have been. Thanks Karen.
