This expedition will take you to a part of the Serengeti known as the Western Corridor. The main feature of this area is the two Rivers: The Grumeti and the Mbalageti and this area sustains a very good permanent wildlife population including all the predators, zebra and wildebeest. There is also a wide variety of birdlife. The migration passes roughly between May and early July pausing to gather momentum before crossing the crocodile-rich waters of the Grumeti River.
Day 1: Transfer from Arusha to Serengeti Western Corridor
On arrival at Kilimanjaro or from your hotel in Arusha, you will be transferred to Serengeti National Park’s western corridor on which the drive takes approximately 8 hours. On arrival at your lodge you will check in, relax, enjoy your dinner and later overnight.
Around end of April, May and June, a vast army of wildebeests along with its partners: zebras, elands and gazelles mill around the Western Corridor of the Serengeti, south of the Grumeti River. You can encounter leopards and hyenas and ahead by giant Nile crocodiles, many hundreds perish as some hazard the river crossing while others detour it. But the beauty of the landscape, stretching without end beneath an infinite sky on a Serengeti West Safari changes something within the watcher who becomes more aware of the place of humankind within the drama of the animal world.
Day 2: Full Day Game drives in Serengeti
This entire day is set aside for game drives upon the Western Serengeti. Later Afternoon enjoy your picnic lunch and continue with the game drives. The Serengeti is habitat of an abundance of wildlife such as impala, buffalo, crocodile and h is more well-known for its great migrating herds of zebra, antelope, and wildebeest. Apart from the migrating herds you will have the opportunity to see the resident predators, leopard, cheetah and lion fulfilling their role in the circle of life.
