Tanzania Safari Tours offer a really special experience that you can find: the Serengeti Wildebeest Migration. Wildebeest rarely migrate to other regions of Africa.

What The Wildlife Is Doing In February?
You can find the wildebeest calving days while on a Tanzania safari vacation. Each February, 500,000 newborn wildebeest are born into the world. Due to the grass' richness in calcium and magnesium, which is helpful for milk production, pregnant female wildebeest give birth in this location during the calving season. A large herd begins to form as a result. Additionally, you could see them grazing on the short grass.

The cat population increases as soon as the calving season starts. Additionally, lions, leopards, and cheetahs are able to quickly put on weight and conserve energy.
