Project Description

Serengeti Wildebeests Migration is a display of natural wonders with over two million wildebeests, zebras, and antelope traveling over 450 miles across the plain to ensure their survival, unaware that there’s danger presented by the stalking lions and cheetahs among other predators of the wildlife. Witness huge crocodiles of the Mara River as they wait for the herbivorous to cross the swollen Mara river and enter into Masai Mara Game Reserve from Serengeti National Park.
The wildebeest migration river crossing in August moves north, passing via the north of Central Serengeti National Park and the Wagakuria area.

Lake Natron

On the way, you will pass Engaruka, an archaeological site of the Stone-age settlement, as well as the majestic Ondonyo Lengai mountain which is the only active volcanic mountain in the Great Rift Valley. Lake Natron will fascinate you with its colors, varying from pink, lime, green and red due to the concentration of minerals and possibly the flamingoes! It is an almost surreal and breathtaking landscape which will leave you in awe! Arrive in the late afternoon for a brief check-in, followed by bird watching, flamingo and sunset walk around the lake.

Northern Serengeti Kogatende
After breakfast, we will proceed for a full day game drive viewing the great migration at the Mara area. Resident wildlife numbers are exceptionally high in the Wagakuria area. The key feature is the Mara River and there is a great chance to see the herds cross the Mara River to the north on one day and back south a few days later. Please note that it can be very difficult to witness crossing and is sometimes a matter of luck. A herd can be seen next to the river and only decide to cross a couple of days later. This area is a stunning region with kopjes, woodland, riverine vegetation and open plains, similar to Kenya’s Masai Mara
