Safaris into the Western Corridor of Serengeti The beauty
and attraction of the Western Corridor of the Serengeti National
Park is still underestimated and left out of many itineraries. The
special attraction of this area lies in the all year round
availability of water in the Grumeti River, and heavier rainfall
than the rest of the Serengeti. This results in large resident herds
of wildebeest and most of the other game. On top of that, the area
is also part of the migration route of the wildebeest: as the dry
season intensifies the population moves away from the eastern plains
to the north and west towards Lake Victoria.
to the dryness in the tourist high season (July, August), the number
of animals seen on the plains in the east of the Serengeti and
around Seronera is often quite disappointing. The Western Corridor
is an excellent area to make up for this;
all year round you
have the chance to see large numbers of wildebeest, zebra and
gazelle, and various other mammals like cheetah, lion, elephant and
hippo, and exceptionally large crocodile. The area never becomes as
dry and dusty as the eastern plains.
this makes the Lodge an exceptionally good starting point for a
Serengeti safari. It is only 15 km from the Ndabaka Gate. You
immediately encounter the wildlife. You do not need to venture out
more then 50 km to see most of the game this park has to offer.
After a hot day you return to the cool breeze from the lake.
