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.
Due 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.
All 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.
