WILDEBEEST MIGRATION CALVING SEASON - 4 DAYS

TRIP OVERVIEW

The calving season of the Serengeti wildebeest migration stands as a remarkable spectacle occurring within the East African Serengeti ecosystem, primarily nestled in Tanzania. This event forms a pivotal component of the Great Wildebeest Migration, an awe-inspiring phenomenon that orchestrates the movement of well over a million wildebeest alongside other herbivores like zebras and gazelles, all driven by the pursuit of fresh grazing grounds. Generally transpiring between January and February, the Serengeti wildebeest migration calving season is concentrated in the southern expanse bridging the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Conservation Area, colloquially known as the Ndutu Area. However, it’s worth noting that the precise timing can exhibit slight variations from year to year. Within this temporal window, gravid wildebeest amass in impressive numbers across the fertile plains of the Serengeti, poised to bring forth the next generation.

Arrival: Kilimanjaro Airport - Arusha

Upon your arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, our skilled driver guide will be there to greet you. Subsequently, you’ll be smoothly transferred to your lodging in Arusha, a journey spanning approximately one hour.

As the sun rises, you’ll embark from your hotel/lodge in Arusha after enjoying a hearty breakfast. Your path will lead you on a two-hour expedition to the scenic Lake Manyara National Park. En route, you’ll traverse the vibrant Mto wa Mbu village market. Upon arrival at the park, a captivating game drive awaits, offering glimpses of diverse African wildlife such as the unique tree-climbing lions, stately elephants, and agile primates. Following the game drive, you’ll retreat to your selected accommodation for a satisfying dinner and a restful overnight stay.

Dawn heralds the commencement of a thrilling day ahead. An early breakfast fuels your adventure as you journey to the Ndutu Region nestled within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Along the way, keep watch for the presence of creatures like buffalo, baboons, and majestic elephants. Post-lunch, your exploration of the Ndutu Region unfolds, revealing a tapestry of grazing animals, including the iconic wildebeest herds. The day concludes with a leisurely drive to your accommodation, providing a tranquil setting for dinner, relaxation, and a peaceful overnight stay.

A new day dawns, and an early breakfast sets the tone for your exploits. The sunrise might grace you with its splendor, and an early morning game drive could unveil the captivating dynamics of predators in action. Return to your lodge for a satisfying hot lunch, recharging you for another bout of exploration within the Ndutu region. A full day spent on a game drive treats you to an awe-inspiring spectacle: the inaugural steps of tens of thousands of young wildebeest. As the day’s light fades, retreat to your lodge for a delectable dinner and a restful overnight reprieve.

Following a wholesome breakfast, a comprehensive day of game viewing beckons as you set forth on a full-day game drive to the remarkable Ngorongoro Crater, often hailed as the Eighth Wonder of the World. Within this pristine ecosystem, a diverse array of animals, including the revered Big Five—black rhinos, lions, African cape buffalos, and elephants—can be encountered. The crater’s bounty extends to encompass other remarkable species like zebras and hyenas. Upon concluding your immersive tour, the journey leads you back to Arusha, bringing your captivating expedition to a close.

Kilimanjaro Lemosho route TTC were amazing throughout my trek to the Kilimanjaro summit in October 2022. Everything was organised so well but the really exceptional aspect was the team of local support staff and guide. AJ, Paul, Isaya, Joseph, Pascal, Renata and the 30 other fantastic people that carried, cooked, camped and cared for us. Absolutely loved every second, a trip of a lifetime, thank you 🙏

Once in a lifetime experience I climbed Kilimanjaro with the Tanzanian Travel Company (booked through Charity Challenge UK) in October 2022. Everything was superbly coordinated by TTC, who arranged everything from porters, transport, food, tents- pretty much everything we needed to get to the summit! All of the staff from the guides and porters were very friendly and their knowledge was unrivalled. Special mentions to our lead guide, Richard, who's advice was invaluable and the other guides and porters David, Eric and Joseph (there are too many to mention). Would definitely book again with TTC in the future.

Excellent experience I just got back from climbing My Kilimanjaro on a trip organised by Charity Challenge in the UK. All the ground arrangements in Tanzania were done through Tanzania Travel Company and I would highly recommend. Staff were all excellent, knowledgeable and friendly. It was a great trip and I’m considering organising a holiday for the family with TTC in the future.

An adventure you won't forget! The whole experience from start to finish was awesome and I most certainly won't forget it. From the hotel to the staff and porters who made our trek possible, the food was tasty and plentiful, we all felt like part of the team and very well looked after.I definitely recommend doing the Lemosho Route for a greater chance of acclimatisation. The summit night was by far the hardest part but well worth the effort (even I got emotional). I would urge everybody looking to climb Kilimanjaro to definitely train for a good 4-5 months before attempting this challenge, it will only enhance the mammoth achievement.

Fantastic time climbing Kilimanjaro thanks to TTC! I recently completed a climb of Kilimanjaro with a small group of 7, managed on behalf of Charity Challenge by Tanzania Travel Company. We had a fantastic (if gruelling) experience, and I cannot praise TTC highly enough. From the MD Sam and our chief guide Richard, through to every guide and porter who accompanied us (not forgetting Pius, our doctor), everyone combined the highest standards of professionalism with warmth and friendliness, and a genuine concern for both our well-being and our success in getting to the summit. Highly recommended.

Amazing family experience Excellent safari! Incredibly friendly and accommodating! I was having some difficulty finding a well priced thorough safari and was given a number by a family friend who highly recommended this safari company. As Tanzanians it’s rare for us to be able to see a safari but Samuel helped guide us through a plan for a truly unforgettable experience. We hide an amazingly well educated guide and driver Kamau who went out of his way to get us some truly amazing shots. At one point we were literally 2-3 meters away from 3 young male lions, I was in shock at what Kamau could point out. Food provided was excellent Tanzanian cuisine. My little brothers(8 yr)first safari and he had a fantastic time Highly recommend as a Tanzanian.

Excellent experience with TTC! Setting out to climb Mt Kilimanjaro was quite a challenge and the team at TTC made it a safe and enjoyable trip! They did an excellent job guiding us through each day of the climb. I also had the opportunity to go on a safari afterwards with a guide named Livingston and he did an absolutely fantastic job getting us close to the animals and knowing the best spots in the game drives. Highly recommend this incredible travel group!
