North of the Mara River lies the Lamai
Wedge, rolling savannah contrasts with rock-strewn hillsides and giant fig-tree
groves. Serian's Serengeti North lies in a
hidden valley of the Wogakuria. Where the swaying seas of grass are open to the
lake basin skies, framed in the north by a range of distinctive inselbergs.
This little-known area in northern
Serengeti full of secret valleys and ranging hills, has the Mara river running
through it. The Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya lies close by across the
border. Kogatende also known as Wogakuria offers
great quality game viewing, but without the crowds! The migration passes
through from June to November, this is the most
exciting time! With immense panoramic river crossings, you witness crocodiles
gorging themselves, whilst indulgent Lion, Cheetah and Leopard pursue and
delight in the smorgasbord of nomadic mega herds.
Serian's Serengeti South - Dec to Apr
SERENGETI SOUTH (NgoroNgoro Conservation Area) - Dec to May
The Southern Serengeti is dominated by vast apparently infinite short grass plains, the Maswa woodlands to the south west and the dramatic Gol Mountains and open plains of Loliondo to the east. The southern plains are at their best between mid December and late May when this whole area comes alive as millions of wildebeest move onto the plains in search of the fresh green grass after the first rains.
A low use area you can drive all day and hardly see another human. At times almost wading through vast concentrations of plains games or sitting quietly, close to an isolated water pan way out in the plains, almost certainly home to its own resident pride of lion or Cheetah or Wild Dog and, with patience a very likely amphitheatre for some sort of predator action to play out. This is one of my favourite area's to walk in with some lively architectural landscape.
