The trek, which started in October, moving from north to south, is coming to an end. After the seasonal rains begin, the herd moves south and through the central Serengeti looking for new food sources, and finding them in the short grass plains of the southern Serengeti.
With this abundance of food and water, the wildebeests will settle in Ndutu and the southern Serengeti region for a time to feed and calve. However, this does not mean that life will get any easier. With a herd on the move and calving happening, canny predators will try to pick off easy targets.
