Bordering the south-western boundary of Serengeti National Park, Maswa Game Reserve is a beautiful area where the wide-open plains of the park turn to rolling hills, rocky kopjes, acacia woodland, seasonal rivers and permanent water holes.
Following the fresh grazing south, the great wildebeest migration reaches the area’s plains in January, spreading out to calve and feed before turning north once more in April. The area enjoys great wildlife viewing after this period, with a high density of lion and leopard as well as other big game species resident year round.
Maswa itself is comprised of two private reserves – Mbono and Kimali – with a combined area of over 500,000 acres containing just a handful of classic East African tented camps which provide a fabulously exclusive safari experience. Being outside the national park, you’ll be able to explore on night as well as day time game drives, and to discover the landscape on guided bush walks. You can also find evidence of ancient tribal cultures with a visit to the Twa rock paintings nearby.
