Experience a full day of game drives in the Kogatende and Bologonja areas, focusing on the Great Migration According to a recent update, the Great Migration has arrived in the Kogatende area of the Northern Serengeti and is getting ready for the epic crossing over the Masai River. The herds are gathering along the river to the Gardenia Valley moving into the Nyamalumbwa Plains and the Sand River The Great Wildebeest Migration – the annual migration of giant herds of grazers across Northern Tanzania and Kenya is a truly spectacular event.

Day 2:Northern Serengeti National Park

After an early breakfast we have a game drive The Northern Serengeti offers a chance to escape the crowds: this region of the park – wedged between the Central Serengeti and Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve to the north – is remote and relatively inaccessible, which means it sees fewer visitors. Travellers who make it to this corner of the Serengeti will be rewarded with gorgeous landscapes, The 800-kilometre trek of the immense wildebeest herd is the largest mammal migration on earth. The timing of the migration coincides with the greening of nutritious grasses on the short-grass plains during the wet season. These areas are safer because predators can be easily spotted making it an ideal place for calving. However, the plains dry and the wildebeest are forced to move in search of greener pastures in the western corridor. The northern extension of the ecosystem has the highest rainfall, but the grasses are the least nutritious.
