Day 6

After our hearty breakfast, we head out to enjoy a full day game drive in the Ndutu region. We will endeavour to explore the range of different habitats found here that include swamps, woodland, soda lakes, and the world famous Serengeti short grass plains. We will see the awesome sight of the great thronging herds of wildebeest and zebra. During a short time frame around February, normally lasting for about 3 weeks, the majority of the wildebeest calve, dropping in the region of half a million young in this awesome act of synchronised birthing. The sea of grass provides little cover and the young are easy pickings for a variety of predators, with cheetah being particularly active, alongside simba or leo panthera, our friend the lion, hyena, and the illusive leopard. Wildebeest calves can run minutes after they are born and within 3 days they are normally strong enough to keep up with the herd.
With our day of adventure drawing to a close, as the shadows of the African night beginning to descend we went our way back to The Heritage Camp to once more take our ease and seek vivification in conversation and a casting of our minds eye back over the sights and sounds of the day upon the Serengeti.
