Tanzania is a world famous destination for big cat safaris in Africa and is one of the only two countries in North East Africa where you can follow the awe inspiring Wildebeest migration. The Great Migration of Wildebeest and Thompson's Gazelle is one of the largest mass movements of wildlife on our planet. These huge herds, measuring in their thousands, migrate naturally through the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem which cross the border between Tanzania and Kenya. Depending on the wildlife and photography experience you are looking for, you can 'intercept' this migration at different times of the year in both Tanzania and Kenya and witness one of natures finest wildlife spectacles. Many visitors come from August to September to witness the migration of the Wildebeest across the northern plains towards the Mara River, but possibly the best time to visit Tanzania for wildlife is late January/early February. This is because after the short rains of November and December new nutritious grasses are growing in the South Serengeti and Ngorongoro Conservation Area - specifically the Lake Ndutu region. The huge herds of Wildebeest choose these locations and this time of year to simultaneously give birth to as many as half a million calves! This mass birthing attracts the highest density of predators in Africa and you are likely to see large lion prides, hunting cheetahs and lots of scavengers such as Spotted Hyena and Jackals.
