Crossing migration safari
SURVIVAL FOR THE FITTEST
This is the long dry season and the wildebeest migration is moving north with the thundershowers. August is time for the Wildebeest annual rut (mating) and this generally happens in the very North of the Serengeti National Park in an area called Kogatende. But, before reaching the mating grounds the Mara River needs to be crossed and this provides some amazing wildlife viewing.
Hundreds of thousands of wildebeest can congregate at crossing points: all crossing in a single continuous wave of beasts. And all this while tooth and claw are waiting around the sides to pick off the weak and the careless.Besides the amazing wildlife in Kogatende another very positive feature is that there are very few lodges and camps here so all the viewing can happen with few others around.
