Photo Safari-Green Season Ndutu | 10 Days

If you are considering a photography tour in Tanzania, you will be either looking to photograph the Wildebeest Migration on the southern plains of the Serengeti in Jan to March (where the grass is green, no dust and plenty of contrast) This makes for an incredible sight on game drives - you can expect to see newborn calves and you might be lucky enough to witness a birth, plus you’re likely to see plenty of predator action. The wildebeest encourage their newborns to get on their feet immediately and join the herd where there is safety in numbers. Lions, cheetahs, leopards, spotted hyenas and rare wild dogs wait in the surrounding areas ready to prey on the weak and vulnerable members of the herd.
