Ndutu region the area in the southern Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area it’s where life begins. Ndutu taking as a very important place for wildebeest migration as a half a million young wildebeest brought into the world in this place - with an average of 8,000 wildebeest born each day. It is here that the young calves begin to take shape, and it is here that the predators begin their year long assault upon the herd.
