The plains are at their most beautiful, vivid with wildflowers and teeming game!

This is an ideal time for photographic safari as the quality of the light is magical. However, the short grasses of the south cannot sustain the vast herds, and they are moving northwards and westwards. 

From April to June, the Serengeti is the theatre for one of the most impressive wildlife shows on earth. Hundreds of thousands of plains game are moving towards the Seronera, the the Grumeti River. This spectacular moving feast is trailed by predators; lion, cheetah, leopard and hyena. 

The Seronera area of the Serengeti comprises open plains dotted with attractive kopjes. There's plenty of resident game with relaxed predators as well as the migrating herds coming through in April and May. Given in the Seronera's Central position, you can stay here and still travel south as well as north to the Western Corridor. However, this advantage means that the Seronera rains busy throughout most of the migration.
