One of the mysterious events in Serengeti that involves these ancient beast is the famous calving season, this is when thousands of cubs are born in one duration, usually the birthing time takes places between January and February with march and April months being used as the time to tend to the young ones and prepare them for a long journey ahead in search of much better pastures after the dry season kicks in
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
