Serengeti Western Corridor

When the annual Great Migration is underway in the Serengeti, everything is alive with action. Predators hunt their prey; and wildebeest, zebra, and gazelles move to new grazing grounds. The Western Corridor is the most remote part of the Serengeti. It’s defined by two rivers, the Grumeti and the Mbalageti, making the vast plains lush and verdant. Woods and hills dot the landscape, making the area superb for game viewing all year round. If you want to see the migration, you’ll have to visit between the months of May through to July.
