If you are amongst the people who are curious about why approximately two million wildebeest migrate every year, then the Serengeti calving season will give you all the answers you need to know! The November rains turn the southern plains of Serengeti green and allow the wildebeest to gaze on the fresh grass for their energy-demanding calving season. Even though the season is short-lived, the number of wildebeests coming out of the Masai Mara into the southern plains is large! After gaining energy for calving, these wildebeests then go into adjoining areas such as the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Ndutu Plains, and Lake Masek.
The wildebeest calving season begins in January, and by February, the pregnant wildebeest give birth to about 8000 baby wildebeests every day. Since the number of these animals is very high, they act as a magnet for predators like lions, cheetahs, and leopards. While touring through the calving season, you have high chances of witnessing a predator-prey interaction and certainly a kill!
