Safari traveling to Tanzania is a unique experience and an opportunity for an adventure of a lifetime. The Great Wildebeest Migration river crossing takes place from July. Wildebeests move towards the north, passing through the Lobo area (located just  north of the central Serengeti National Park) and the Wagakuria area (remote northern Serengeti National Park along Mara River) en-route to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve. The migration can arrive at the Wagakuria area anytime from July onwards and wildebeests can be seen in the area, crossing the Mara River. In September the wildebeest herds are spread out over the northern Serengeti National Park and Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve. Several large herds of wildebeest remain behind in the area and sometimes, only weather changes can bring the herds back into the area from Mara. In October, the herds move south towards the central Serengeti National Park via the Lobo area.

A million wildebeest, each one driven by the same ancient rhythm, fulfilling its instinctive role in the inescapable cycle of life; a frenzied three-week bout of territorial conquests and mating; survival of the fittest as 40km (25 mile) long columns plunge through crocodile-infested waters on the annual exodus north.

Day 05: Serengeti National Park–(North Mara)

After breakfast, we’ll depart for Serengeti North Kogatende where you will see the great migration crossing the river. Drive back to the camp in the evening.

River crossings at Kogatende start to occur every day in August as the mega herd settles into the area. For August, September and October, game viewing up here is superb with river crossings pretty much guaranteed every day. There is no distinct movement as the herds tend to cross back and forth over the river, following the rains and subsequent fresh grasses. It is not uncommon to see different herds crossing in different directions on the same day.

Resident wildlife numbers are exceptionally high in the Wagakuria area, with prides of lion up to 30 strong, however from August to October the area turns into a wildlife paradise. The key feature is the Mara River and it is not uncommon to see the herds cross the Mara River north on one day and then back south a few days later. Please take note – finding a crossing is very difficult and is sometimes a matter of luck. . A herd can be seen next to river and only decide to cross or not cross until 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 Game Reserve. Overnight at Acacia Migration Camp.
