5-Day Safari Wildebeest Cross The Mara River.

TANZANIA GREAT WILDEBEEST MIGRATION SAFARI IN NORTHER CORRIDOR. At the end of May there are wildebeest herds spread from the Western corridor through the heart of the park. One group tends to head west into the Western Corridor and crosses the Grumeti River before leaving the park and entering the exclusive Singita Grumeti Reserves. This herd will then head up through the Ikorongo game reserve on the Serengeti’s Western corridor before the front runners arrive into the Kogatende area in July.

Driving time is approximately 20 minutes with game viewing en route. Each of the tents at the camp is shaded by acacia trees. The canvas pavilions at the camp are unashamedly luxurious but still close enough to nature to permit an exciting night under canvas. In the afternoon there is time to relax before embarking on your first game drive around Mara River. Huge herds of wildebeest trying crossing Mara River will give you a great time to witness Nile crocodile trying to catch their meals, impala and zebra are all easily spotted while Hippopotamus will be seen at the shoe of the river.

Day 3:- Serengeti.
Today you will have a full day game drive into the heart of the Serengeti Kogatende area around Mara River with a picnic lunch. River crossings often happen daily here. Given that the herds are simply following local rainfall, some move north, some move south… and many moves in both directions in the same day. The sprawling ball moves in a circular fashion throughout these months – it is a fantastic time of the year to see the herds in action with predators like lions, Crocodiles, and leopards in action of finding their prey.
