Serengeti Tanzania Africa largest national park Bookmark and Share

If you are thinking of catching the February wildlife great migration in the Serengeti national park, now is the time to book.The Serengeti played host to our honeymoon and 40 of our friends from around the world. Mid February we arrived and our timing was perfect.
I suddenly felt like I had been put into one of David Attenborough’s documentary’s witnessing the most spectacular scenes played out before my eyes the plains were full of gnu zebra’s and other wild life. The herd slowly moved on through it’s march, in the early morning light we could see mothers giving birth barely stopping, some of the mothers had calves half in and half out and had to carry on giving birth while marching with the herd.
No sooner were the calves born than they starting unfolding and stretching, staggering as quickly as they could to their feet to join the herd. Watching with quiet awe we witnessed as predators stalked the weak, the sick, the aged and young (if they were left alone or could be separated from the herd), while yards away mothers were giving birth to their young.
We went deep into the Serengeti where the scenery was spectacular, but the biggest concentration of game we saw was near lake Ndutu. Huge flat topped acacias surround the beautiful glistening and welcoming Lake Ndutu it is a beautiful setting that is home to the wild life that migrates through the Serengeti.
We stayed two nights at Ndutu Safari Lodge which is quite small (I think we filled it) but was full of old style game lodge charm and is the only lodge where you can sit and watch the migration of the wildebeest as they give birth and feed on the grass. To leave Serengeti and Tanzania will be the hardest thing we will have to do this trip, Lake Ndutu is a wonderful place that made our Tanzania safari the most magical adventure of our life time, it is fair to say that Africa has a place in our hearts and we will return
