This 6-DayGreat Serengeti Migration (EAST OF THE GRUMETI RIVER & NAABI HILL) Wet season Safari package has been designed specifically to focus on and to increase your chance to see the great Serengeti Wildebeest Migration in Eastern Serengeti, including Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro crater.The eastern plains of the Serengeti ecosystem encompass a massive area. They begin roughly just east of Naabi Hill. They extend east through the Gol Kopjes, Lemuta Hill, Nasera Rock, AngataKiti, the Salei Plains and all the way to the Ngorongoro Highlands.Wildbeests usually linger in north-eastern Serengeti and migrate further south in December.
You will enjoy a Serengeti East Safari during November and December when the mega herds return from Masai Mara National Reserve to the rich plains of the Serengeti National Park, east of the Grumeti River, passing through Lobo and Western Loliondo and under the majestic Gol mountains, at the northern edge of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Here, you will find one of the utmost concentrations of cheetahs in the Serengeti, preying on half a million indigenous gazelles and impalas including migrants. The mountains shelter colonies of Ruppell's Griffon Vultures. Wildebeest cover the central-east valleys on their way north after the long rains, and some pour through the scenic bottleneck of the AngataKiti pastures during the shorter rains on their way back south. But with or without the migratory millions, this area is breathtaking for its immensity and feeling of freedomthe world famous Ngorongoro Crater.
Lobo, at the eastern edge of the Serengeti National Park and on a small stretch of the Grumeti River that offers excellent year-round game observation, gives unrivaled views of grassland and kopjes. Farther south, outside the game park border, and almost a third as large as the Serengeti National Park, Loliondo is a private concession and more versatile
