The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest on earth. The essential features of climate, vegetation and fauna have barely changed in the past million years. Early man himself made an appearance in Olduvai Gorge about two million years ago. Some patterns of life, death, adaptation and migration are as old as the hills themselves!

Ndutu is known for beautiful landscape and the famous calving season caused by the immigration of the wildebeests from the Maasai Mara Reserve in Kenya to The Great Serengeti plains in Tanzania. There are at least 5000 calves born every day due to the large number of wildebeests that cross over. The best season to visit the place is from December all the way to March.
