East Africa’s revered Great Wildebeest Migration has ranked on travelers’ bucket list year after year. For first-time visitors to Tanzania, the renowned river crossings between June and September are the main draw card and the northern circuit floods with tourists who want to witness the action first-hand. However, there are perks to traveling outside of Tanzania’s peak season – cue Jumbari Family Safaris’ premier Wildebeest Calving Season Safari.

“Our 9 day Calving Season Safari was designed to promote the benefits of traveling outside of peak season. One of the most obvious perks is more favourable rates – up to 50% off, and fewer safari vehicles competing for wildlife sightings. From a more holistic perspective, by traveling to Tanzania in the Green Season, guests will take pressure off the north of the Serengeti and provide Tanzanian employed in the industry with a more stable all-year round income,” says Lisa Nel.

The 9 day itinerary invites guests to escape the crowds of Tanzania’s peak season and witness a rare and beautiful wildlife event that is comfortably on a par with the Wildebeest crossings.

The calving season between January and February sees the plains of the Southern Serengeti, Ndutu region and the northern regions of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania come to life as mega herds of Wildebeest and zebra migrate to calve. The calcium-rich grass shoots from the green season attract pregnant wildebeest in search of sustenance for their soon-to-be newborns. During this period, over 8000 calves are born each day attracting predators such as cheetah, lion and leopard.

The itinerary takes you to the heart of the action starting in Arusha and onward to Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the Ndutu region.

Pricing for this 9 day Wildebeest Calving Season Safari starts from xxxxx per person sharing and is available to book in January and February 2021. The itinerary is also available on Jumbari’s Safari Payment Plan – an interest-free payment plan which makes it possible for guests to pay-off a dream family holiday in monthly installments prior to travel. To give guests peace of mind, Jumbari offers fee-free postponements and flexible cancellation terms with their Versatile Vacations payment terms.

Jumbari Family Safaris offers guests the opportunity to decrease their carbon footprint when traveling to Africa through a tree planting initiative in collaboration with Greenpop. For only $8, guests can donate a tree to one of the forest restoration projects in Sub-Saharan Africa.
