Western Corridor


A secluded and superb Serengeti experience


The Serengeti is renowned for its high concentrations of wildlife, most notably as the stage on which the annual Great Migration plays out. Over a million wildebeest, gazelle, and zebra make their way to Kenya’s neighbouring Maasai Mara National Reserve and back in search of better grazing. The remote Western Corridor of the Serengeti is defined by its two rivers: the Grumeti and the Mbalageti that run alongside one another.

The vast plains of the southern Serengeti become softer and increasingly verdant in the Western Corridor with numerous patches of woodland sprouting from the earth, while the land rises up in parts to form extended hill ranges. The park boasts superb game-viewing all year round, a huge predator population, and varied birdlife. Most of the game in the area assembles near the Grumeti banks, whose waters are home to countless hippo pods and crocodiles.

Although excellent game-viewing is possible whatever time of year visitors choose to holiday in the Western Corridor, May through to July months offer chances to observe the Great Migration. Scores of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle arrive in the area to rest before eventually mustering up the courage to cross the perilous crocodile-infested Grumeti. A number of lodges in the area offer prime accommodation and game-viewing opportunities.
