This mind-blowing event takes place in the southern part of Serengeti and the northern western part of Ngorongoro conservation area, it is believed the animals prefer this area for reproduction because of the nutritious soil in the area which leads to the presence of healthy grasses full of needed minerals for their young ones, the nature of the grasses also allows them to spot their enemies who tirelessly prey for their curbs
