Serengeti safari holidays to the Western corridor of the Serengeti Tanzania.
The Western corridor of the Serengeti is the Western spur of the park that stretches from the Seronera for some 40 miles to within a few miles of the shores of Lake Victoria. To the North are dense Acacia forests and the swamps of the Grumeti river which runs the length of the corridor, while to the South is an area of grassland.
There are indigenous populations of animals in this area all year around, and the unique scenery and relative tranquillity of this area of the park warrant a visit at any time of the year. However it is between end of May and early July that the vast herds cross the corridor on their way North. Undoubtedly the main attraction, if somewhat morbid, is the crossing of the Grumeti by the herds of wildebeest heading for the fresh grass of the Masai Mara. The herds following a lemming-like instinct, jump headlong into the raging crocodile infested waters, desperately trying to avoid crocodiles and awaiting lions on the other side.
Part of the Southward migration also passes through the Western corridor usually in November or early December. This is also a good time to visit. There are excellent lodges in this area of the Park
There are two luxury safari camps that we use in this part of the park or alternatively we can set up our own tented camp for our guests.
