Find a place of rare offerings – your own private Serengeti…
From August to March, this region is a perfect example of less is more – less people, less vehicles – more time, more space, more unforgettable wildlife moments.
The Serengeti National Park is a tapestry of landscapes, dominated by vast plains. This diversity is echoed in the western corner, where the verdant beauty of the Grumeti riverine valley and forested shores is offset against the open-space grandeur of the grassy plains with their backdrop of rolling hills. The legendary sunrises and sunsets of this region make it a photographer’s paradise.
Go West: Why Visit August – March?
All year round, huge prides of lion, a wealth of big-cat predators, hyena clans, buffalo, elephants and herds of the game can be seen in this western part of the Serengeti, together with signature species like the entrancing black and white colobus monkeys, and exceptional birdlife. The permanent waters of the Grumeti and seasonal Mbalageti rivers draw a profusion of the game to their shores. Resident hippo pods can be seen in the river pools, and crocodiles lie, log-like, in the shallows.
This is a place of wildlife magic, every day, every month, every year. A magic that flames with the throngs of the Great Migration, before settling back into its perennial wildlife glow. It offers a year-round, exclusive invitation to a game-viewing wonderland. It is also a perfect complement to other viewing highlights within the Serengeti, Tanzania, and neighbouring countries.
