Regions of Serengeti
When dropping into Serengeti National Park, it will sound very special as if you you had no clue of what is to expect, all of the sudden: BAM! You are in the deep end now and you must quickly orient yourself. It is not something to worry about, Trip Insight Tanzania will explain a bit more about this, and just in case you have any additional Questions we are glad to answer!
Each experienced driver knows every nook and cranny of this park, and will provide you with much-needed context along the way. To give you a general sense of the region and all of its parts before you arrive, here’s a look at the four main regions of the Serengeti: Central (Seronera), Western Corridor, Northern, and Southern.
Region 1: Southern Serengeti:
Southern Serengeti consists of short-grass plains, and it’s technically where the Great Migration begins. From December to March, wildebeests begin to grow and congregate in number in the south, in regions around Lake Ndutu, shared by both the Ngorongoro and the Serengeti;
Region 2: Northern Serengeti
By the beginning of July, the migration makes its way north to the upper, lesser-visited reaches of the park, where most of the animals will remain until September. Here you will find more woodlands and hills, along with the main highlight, the Mara River. During this period, wildebeest will cross the river several times, and, like the Grumeti River, these passages can be deadly. Here is some incredible footage of the scale of wildebeest at the Mara River.
Region 3: Western Corridor and Grumeti
Spin your Serengeti dial west and you reach the Western Corridor and the infamous Grumeti River, one of the most dramatic river crossings for the millions of wildebeest that migrate endlessly in search of grasslands and water. The Great Migration makes its way to the Western Corridor late-May through June, and it is here where you will see wildebeest threading past lions and leopards and Nile crocodiles—some over 20 feet long (6.5m)
