UpdatefromNdutu Safari Lodge

The Ndutu pride cubs are growing! Two mother lioness with eight lion cubs were captured on the edge of the Big Marsh.

There’s truly nothing that compared to seeing a baby wildebeest or lion cubs after being born. Traveling to the Serengeti during the calving season promises an excitingadventure full of wonder and plenty of action.

There are several great properties in the southern Serengeti and Ndutu areas that allow you to stay close to the action. Whether you choose to stay in a luxury lodge ora mobile-tented camp, you can be certain that game viewing during the calving season is one of the best time to be in Africa.
