The Ndutu region is part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and stretches to the southern Serengeti. The great migration reaches here with its 2 million animals to give birth to their calves and thousands of animals are born daily between the end of December and the beginning of March. This also attracts many predators like lions and hyenas. The Ndutu area is famed for its short grass plains which grow grass that is particularly rich in nutrients and sustains the migratory animals whilst they have their babies. Traditionally the wildebeest and zebra tend to calve on these plains with a peak around February which makes for a beautiful natural spectacle and some exciting predator hunting behaviours.
