 The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is a protected area and a World Heritage Site located 180 km (110 mi) west of Arusha in the Crater Highlands area of Tanzania. The area is named after Ngorongoro Crater, a large volcanic caldera within the area. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) has a healthy resident population of most species of wildlife. The Ndutu Lake area to in the west of the NCA has particularly strong cheetah and lion populations. Common in the NCA are hartebeest, spotted hyenas, and jackals. The population of African wild dog in the NCA may have declined recently. Servals occur widely on the plains to the west of the Ngorongoro Crater.


 Our nine days trip will be on the west side of NCA, near Lake Ndutu area where Life begins for a huge number of animal. In the space of a few short weeks, the calving season sees half a million-young wildebeest brought into the world. This is due to the rainy season combining with the fertile volcanic soil of the region to create a lush carpet of short grass rich in essential vitamins. It is here that the vast herd begins to take shape, and where the predators begin their yearlong assault upon the herd. With so many young and weak calves stumbling around, it becomes easy for the lions, leopards, and cheetahs to pick off a tasty morsel. Our stay will be in a tented mobile camp that tracks the wildebeests migration and stay around there all year around. Accompanied by experienced guides, we will be going out daily for 12 continuous hours (from 6 a.m to 6 p.m) to make sure we cover every aspect of this phenomena and document all parts of the area making sure we make the most of our time in there.
