Mbalageti Serengeti Lodge Game Viewing and Activities
Mbalageti is great place to stay between May and July, when the great wildebeest and zebra migration is passing through this area of the Serengeti. It's then a short drive to see the game crossing the Mbalagati and Grumeti rivers. Activities from Mbalageti concentrate mainly on game drives out on the Serengeti plains – and most travellers arrive with their own vehicle and safari guide The migration is usually present in the area between about May and July; however the riverine forest areas of the Western Corridor have some good permanent game, which provides excellent safari activity throughout the year. It is possible to do a morning or afternoon walking safari from Mbalageti Serengeti, guided by an experienced guide with an armed game ranger. These last about two hours, are at an additional charge of about US$50 per person, and follow pre-arranged routes through the bush without deviating substantially.
