July marks the start of the Mara River crossing as well as the mating season in the Serengeti. The herds are in the Grumeti Reserve, moving through the western side of the Serengeti past Fort Ikoma. However, expect dry weather throughout July.
Safari guide, Karim Saadum captured spotted more herds in the Musabi Plains.
The stunning Musabi Plains offer superb off the beaten path game drives. Musabi is an expansive area of plains roughly half way down the Western Corridor and is the favored breeding ground of the topi antelope. The surrounding area is covered in verdant acacia woodlands, which support a myriad of herbivores. Giraffe (the national emblem of Tanzania) dominate the woodlands as they feed exclusively on the tender leaves of acacia trees. Elephants are also found in large numbers here.
