Grumeti Wildebeest Migration

Ideal for those seeking a sublimely comfortable tented experience, the camp’s prime location within the remote region of Nyasirori offers phenomenal wildlife viewing on a year-round basis.

    The Great Migration’s herds usually visit the area between May and July (nature-dependent)

      The Western Corridor, or Serengeti west, ìs a stretch of land following the course of the Grumeti River from Serengeti Central for about 100 kilometers out towards Lake Victoria. Both the Grumeti and Mbalageti rivers support substantial chunks of riverine forests before emptying into Lake Victoria.
      Also, a few minor mountain ranges are found in the area. The savannah supports substantial resident populations of giraffe, wildebeest, elephant, zebra and other typical plains animals, and lion. The little-visited open grasslands north of the river are good for cheetahs and other residents predators.

      The busiest period in terms of visitors is the May-July period which coincides with the Great Migration passing through the Western Corridor on their trek to the north. While the crossing of the Grumeti River may be lesser known compared to its northern counterpart, the crossing of the Mara River, but offers sightings just as exhilarating with the added benefit of fewer fellow visitors at the crossings.

      The Grumeti River is the first enormous obstacle for the herds to tackle.

      FAQs about Grumeti Wildebeest Migration

      What is the accommodation like on safari?


      • Safari lodges have guest rooms similar to a hotel with en-suite bathrooms. They are comfortably furnished with facilities normally associated with a hotel rooms, except your rooms are normally set in beautiful wilderness settings, with nature and wildlife around.


      • Tented lodges have rooms which are tents on a platform and with a roof and also have en-suite facilities with showers, flush toilets and hot water. Basically all the amenities of a hotel room, except canvas walls and roof.


      • The boutique lodges and camps can be very stylish and smart in terms of design and decor, often with very spacious rooms and even going so far in some cases as having plunge pools for each room.


      • Eco-camps and smaller tented camps have insect-proof tents with en-suite facilities including a safari shower and flush toilet.  They give a more authentic safari experience but the tents are comfortably furnished with proper beds and you don’t need to bring your own sleeping bag! The emphasis is usually on having excellent guides and great wildlife viewing away from the crowds. Guests often eat together and people travelling alone usually say that they found the atmosphere friendly and enjoyed meeting other like-minded travellers around the campfire in the evening or at dinner.


      • The Adventure Camps are a budget option with guests bringing their own sleeping bags and towels. Accommodation is in small dome tented with a mattress on the floor. Each tent has its own nearby cubicle with a flush toilet, safari shower, and wash basin. The Adventure Camps are suitable only for those who don’t mind “real camping” and can put with some degree of “roughing it”. Apart from the accommodation in simple dome tents, the meals and the guiding are the same standards as the higher quality camps and game drives are in 4×4 safari vehicles. For those on a limited budget, the Adventure Camps are a good alternative to the big tourist lodges and minibus tours for those for whom the safari experience is more important than hotel accommodation.

        When is the best time to visit Arusha National Park?


        • The best time to visit Arusha National Park is from June to October, during the dry season. It is easier to spot the wildlife – since they normally gather around the waterholes, rainfall is minimal, vegetation is not too thick and mosquitos levels are reduced.


        • However, when you’re visiting make sure you carry warm clothes for the morning game drives, since the early mornings of June all through August are cold.


        • From November to December and March through May – the rains transform the landscape as lush, green grasses emerge and this is also the best time to witness the migratory birds.

          What month is the best to see the dramatic river crossing?


            What is the best time to see the great migration?


            • The best time to see the wildebeest migration is in August as the herds cross the Nile crocodile-infested Mara River, crossing an international border between Kenya and Tanzania.
