Animal Births and Migrations
Depending on where you’re going, you may be able to see some of the thousands of new babies born each day. February is a great time to see lots of babies in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania. In South Africa’s Kruger National Park, November through March is the best season for births. You can also see lots of magnificent wildlife such as lions, leopards, and cheetahs as they are most active stalking their prey from January through April.
In Kenya and Tanzania, you can observe the migrations of the antelope, zebra, and wildebeest July through November – and especially August through October. Vast numbers of animals move through the Serengeti near the end of May, and again in December. If you are interested in birds, then travel from October through April is ideal, when you can see thousands of migrating birds including flamingos, pygmy falcons, blue-headed bee-eaters, yellow-bellied wattle-eyes, and many more.
