Abundant floral growth, flourishing bugs, migrant birds in feeding frenzies and breeding plumage, new life to breeding herds and plenty of opportunities for the predators of every description feature the Green Season.
Green Season falls within the long wet season, over April and May coinciding with the Northern Hemisphere winter and the cold icy weather. The plains turn from a dull brown to a verdurous green with colourful sprays as flowers blossom. Insects and migrant birds add to the beauty of the season. Foals, cubs, fawns and calves all being birthed within this very special season enhance the liveliness of the place.

Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park is at its very best for wildlife during the Green Season. The large herds of wildebeest, big five and zebra are challenged by the big river crossings before they begin to head south for the extraordinary migration. Once the rains have fallen the northern parts of the Serengeti is often filled with scenes of utter and unusual chaos during this seasonal cusp. The southern parts are carpeted in sweet short grass and remain home to massive herds. This time witnesses the breeding season.
