River crossings in the Serengeti : Our MUST DO trip to Tanzania
As the rains in the Serengeti end in May, the land dries up fast and wildebeest herds head north toward their dry season refuge, making the treacherous journey across the Mara and Grumeti Rivers. Nile crocodiles lie in wait to ambush the thousands of wildebeest and zebra that hurl themselves into the muddy waters in what can best be described as Africa’s ultimate leap of faith.
This is one of the few last expanses of true wilderness, offering some of the best game viewing on the continent, and the Serengeti welcomes tens of thousands of visitors each year to come and experience the extraordinary ebb and flow of wildlife that has made Tanzania and Kenya so renowned.
With our Serengeti North Wilderness Camp appropriately positioned close to the action of the river crossings, you’re in the perfect position to witness the battle between prey and predator. We haven’t compromised on comfort with our spacious and cosy en-suite tents. Freshly prepared meals are enjoyed in our central dining area, and the campfire or lounge tent are sociable spots in which to relax and share game viewing stories with your fellow guests. Drift off to sleep to the sounds of the African bush… it doesn’t get much closer or better than this!
