December is baby season in the Central Kalahari

Posted by & filed under Game parks, Wildlife.

In December, the familiar starkness of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve is transformed into what is known as the Green Desert. A mass migration of zebras and wildebeest, among other ungulates, flock to the nourished land after the rains have begun. Here, they give birth to the calves and fawns they have been incubating through the drought, and visitors to the park witness what can only be described as a baby boom.
