The Mbalageti Serengeti Lodge is located roughly in the middle of the western corridor of the Serengeti National Park between Seronera in the central Serengeti and Grumeti in the west Serengeti. Mbalageti is actually the word from old Maa language. It means wildebeest, but the word is no longer in use; today Mbalageti refers to the seasonal river.
Although the lodge is very seasonal for the migration, it does have some superb residential game – and guests will catch the migration as it moves north around June time. The lodge is also well located for balloon flights out of Grumeti. The views from the camp of the Dutwa Plains are fantastic for watching the game as it meanders past.
The lodge have a swimming pool completely built out natural local rocks – with breathtaking view of the Serengeti, the pool offers an ideal opportunity to cool off after a hot and dusty game drive. The main area consists of a rather large restaurant, a great bar and pool and a very well stocked curio shop. The main area has some interesting off sets to it, one of which is a presentation area for educational documentaries about Tanzania.
