About the Mara River Crossing (July to October)
During this period of the year, the herd continues its movement north towards the Maasai Mara National Park in Kenya. There is no tight schedule that these animals follow, and so tracking the herd's movements becomes a day-to-day prospect as they meander slowly but inexorably towards the next big obstacle in their path: the Mara River. The Mara River poses another deadly barrier for the herd, who must again brave swollen waters and the opportunistic predators if they are to find relative safety on the far side. Photographers and documentarians from around the world gather to witness the death-defying crossing, but the surrounding landscapes are every bit as memorable as the life and death struggle taking place at the Kogatende crossing. It is one of the most amazing sites in Serengeti National Park.
After breakfast, tourist(s) will be transferred to Arusha Airport for their flight to the Kogatende area of the Northern Serengeti. Enjoy a bird's eye view of Tanzania as you make the short trip, where you'll be met by your zoom driver upon arrival. You'll spend your day driving through this distinct and magnificently beautiful region of the park in search of the Wildebeest Migration and the Big Five in Serengeti National Park. In the afternoon, you have the option to extend your game drive until sunset then after the driver drives you back to the Lodge or Camp.
