The sound of hooves. The sound of Africa.
The Great Migration Safaris.
7th Wonder of the World
“The greatest show on earth.”
When people think about the Great Migration, they usually envision hundreds and thousands of wildebeests, zebras, and gazelles crossing the East African rivers and battling against their agile predators in their struggle for survival. And yes, this exceptional event happens. However, people often overlook the fact that the Great Migration is not all about the river crossing and has actually so much more to offer.
Around late January to February, the calving season begins. Each day during this time of year, approximately 8,000 baby wildebeests are born. Along with the overwhelming number of calves are cunning predators – big and small – waiting to make a kill. That is why during this season, southern Serengeti and western Ngorongoro Conservation Area hold the highest concentration of predators in the whole of Africa. As seasoned predators, large cats like lions, leopards and cheetahs somehow synchronized their birthing times with the wildebeest calving season. This is simply for the reason of survival. With herds of young wildebeests at bay, it would be easier for mother cats to find a meal for their cubs and more convenient for their young cubs to start learning how to hunt. But, do you think mother wildebeests make this easy for the predators? Of course not! To protect vulnerable birthing mothers and their young, wildebeests form a barricade around them.
With all that action going on, a visit to Tanzania during calving season will certainly make your vacation an adventure beyond compare!
