Mara River and Serengeti Safari

Mara River and Serengeti Safari Safari Overview

The Northern Serengeti is renowned for its sheer size, primeval landscapes and large populations of plains game that seasonally migrate to follow the nutritious pastures. It has become famous for the migration of one and half a million wildebeests and the viewing of dramatic river crossings, which occur close to the camp. The sheer density of wildlife makes it also a predator haven with frequent sightings of lion, leopard, and cheetah.
