A mega crossing in the Mara heading towards the west into the Mara Triangle

A mega crossing in the Mara heading towards the west into the Mara Triangle!

Following August’s activity, September is a quieter month in terms of travellers and a period that still sees the mega-herd spreading out across the entire northern Serengeti and the Maasai Mara. Herds can be found from central Lobo (the central strip of the northern Serengeti) to the western area of the northern Serengeti (Kogatende and Lamai) right through to the heart of the Maasai Mara.

This is another prime river-crossing month, with Kogatende the place to be if this is your focus. A truly wonderful area, due to the energy and beauty of the Mara river system. September is always slightly quieter than August… never a bad thing!

The great wildebeest migration is negotiating their way northbound

The great wildebeest migration is negotiating their way northbound, following recent rains in the Lamai Wedge of the Northern Serengeti.

Between July and October Lamai Serengeti in a prime position to witness the Great Migration of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, and is close enough to the Mara River to experience the awe-inspiring river crossings where masses of animals confront the deep, fast-flowing water and the enormous crocodiles that live within it. But even beyond the Migration season, a wealth of wildlife remains to be enjoyed. Game drives and safari walks accompanied by highly knowledgeable guides deliver a thrilling Big 5 experience, including an abundance of birds.

July marks the start of the Mara River crossings as well as the mating season in the Serengeti!

July marks the start of the Mara River crossings as well as the mating season in the Serengeti!

A very huge herd of the wildebeest were seen crossing number 8 from Kogatende side to Lamai Wedge.

Lamai is a triangular-shaped watershed area just north of the Mara River. Lamai’s freshwater and verdant grasslands serve as a critical refuge for the wildebeest and zebra during the dry season. In fact, the majority of the migration usually resides here from July until November. It’s one of East Africa‘s best secrets that during the dry season, the secluded Lamai Triangle holds more of the migration then the more heavily touristy Masai Mara Game Reserve just to the north in Kenya.

Lamai Serengeti Camp is set amongst the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje with panoramic views in a remote corner of the northern Serengeti, just 4-minutes from where the wildebeest cross the Mara River, usually between late July and October.

Perfect as a honeymoon destination or as a luxury retreat from which to enjoy the many splendours of the Serengeti, Lamai Serengeti Main Camp delivers the very best that this extraordinary region has to offer, from an incredible location to exceptional guiding, service and cuisine.
