The Serengeti is a vast area of around 12,000 square miles, spread over a number of reserves and areas. Its most famous residents, the million strong herds of wildebeest and zebra that form the great migration, mean that depending on the time of year, you might want to be in a specific part of this great territory.
The North Serengeti forms the border with the equally famous Maasai Mara of Kenya. This is the region where the herds are at their most concentrated during the migration, and it’s where (if you’re lucky) you’ll see the infamous river crossings.
The North is an area of untamed natural beauty, of rolling hills, rivers, forests and open plains. We can suggest the best camp for you, based on your preference s and what you’re looking to get out of your experience here.
The North Serengeti hosts only a fraction of the camps and lodges found across the border in Kenya and offers a much better chance for you to witness this awesome phenomenon in relative exclusivity. This is a truly special part of the world.
When to go
The migration is usually in the area from July through to September. However, it's still an excellent place to go right through to November.
