JANUARY TO MARCH
The Great Wildebeest Migration - the birthing - For anyone in search of a wild, apres-Christmas adventure to see something great - well you're in luck. Despite not being one of the best known times for viewing wildebeest, it is one of the most fascinating. January to February marks ‘the birthing’, a short window of time in which the wildebeest give birth to their young, all 400,000 of them.
Polar Bear Mother & Newborn Cubs - Heading towards Arctic territory, March is one of the most amazing times to visit the north. This is when you can see the polar bear cubs leaving their dens for the very first time. Nothing compares to seeing these amazing predators as cubs, playing out in the snow with their mother, finding their feet having only ever seen the inside of their snowy den. They leave their den and explore the area, learning the ways of the world before heading out for hunting season.
The Northern Lights - Polar bears aren’t the only reason to head north at this time of year, as the northern lights around Churchill can be magnificent. These dancing natural lights brighten the sky and reflect on the crystals of snow and ice on the ground. It's no wonder they inspire such amazing stories about other worlds. The northern lights are also great between October and November, another great time to combine them with a polar bear safari.
