Day 4: Migrate with the Caribou Your first sight of the long processions of caribou stretching out over countless kilometres will leave you speechless. After a long winter, thousands return in July to give birth on the Georges River plateau. This region is well known by both amateur and professional photographers on a quest for safari shots.
