Mara River Crossing Under Canvas

Safari During the Months of Mid July to October

Private Safari – Group to Join

Serengeti North

During this time of the year the Great Migration is in Kenya (Maasai Mara) but there is constant crossing of the Mara River to and fro

This  happens with the rains

It all depends what part is raining

The Wildebeests follow the rain pattern.

So if it has rained in the Serengeti and the great herds are in Masai Mara , they will cross the Mara River and move to Serengeti for better pasture

This happened when it rains in Masai Mara  they will  follow the rains in Kenya and cross  the Mara river again.

The weather pattern has to be on your side.

Sometimes you will have to wait over 4 hours to see a River crossing

We will spend Four Nights in this area so that you have a good chance to see the River Crossing in Serengeti.

You will spend two nights in Central Serengeti, this is the time Central Serengeti becomes the Season of Cats.

You will see lots of Cats in Central Serengeti
