Also January the herds have arrived at the Ndutu area and remain here and maybe till end-Mar or Apr. During the estimated period mid-Feb is the ‘calving’ period for a few weeks.
Then from April and so on, the herds start their move north through to the Central (April-May) Serengeti onto the Western Corridor (June-early July) and finally the Northern area by about late-July.
