Serian's Serengeti North; a seasonal camp that operates in the far northern reaches of the Serengeti National Park. A five minute drive from the Kogatende airstrip and within easy striking distance of the "Great Migration's" well documented river crossing points.
Immense panoramas are awash with voluble hordes of wildebeest, brim full of thespian drama. Newborn calves delight in their gangly mobility, whilst mega herds swarm the banks nosing out suitable crossing points. Vast concentrations of wildebeest mix with other ungulates whilst indulgent Lion, Cheetah and Leopard pursue and delight in the smorgasbord of nomadic mega herds.
Roaming like nomads we settle camp at close quarters to this great stage show. From June to November Serian's Serengeti North lies in a hidden valley of the Wogakuria alongside the sinuous Mara River. Decamping southward to the short grass plains in mid December we sift our way through the birthing season when this whole area comes alive with thousands of newborn wildebeest.
