Although this is not peak season for mammals and predators (there is ample water and grass in the surrounding conservation land and no need to migrate into the park until dry season), the park remains fantastic for birds and elephants. There are more than 3,000 resident individuals, usually offering some of your closest encounters with elephants on the northern circuit. The park is also famous for leopard and lion, but the higher grass during this month makes it more difficult to spot predators. There are 650 recorded species of bird in Tarangire during this time of the year, with especially good sightings of raptors and hornbill.

Day 7

This is a wonderful time to visit the Serengeti, as the wildebeest calving should be well underway, provided the short rains have been normal. At this time of the year, the large wildebeest and zebra herds have migrated along the eastern edge of the park (Gol Mountains) for the new growth of the short grass plains. This new grass is rich in calcium and magnesium, essential for the calving process. Almost 750,000 female wildebeest drop their babies within a 3-week period of time, so the spectacle is amazing and predator/prey activity is high.

The forests of the Crater are not large enough to support the cow/calf herds, but the males find the swamps and forest a true haven.
