The baby boom begins

Migration viewing in the southern Serengeti has been pretty special this past couple of weeks as the wildebeest have started to drop their calves. What is truly amazing is the fact that this is triggered by the onset of almost daily rainfall over the short grass plains. Mother Nature knows best, and this is when the new youngsters can make the most of the mineral rich grass which gives them the very best start in life. 

Our Nomad guides are reporting that the herds are seriously impressive in their density between Naabi and Ndutu, and that they are covering the plains and stretching beyond towards the South and Olduvai. We will keep you posted as no doubt there will be plenty of predator action close behind these little guys. 

Huge thanks to Nomad guide Ian Kiwelu for these pics.
