The Western corridor of Serengeti National Park is renowned for its opulence. Offering breathtaking views, incomparable wildlife viewing experiences, and unparalleled luxury, it’s a must-visit for any travel enthusiast on a luxury safari vacation.

Understanding the necessity to safeguard the yearly migration path of wildebeests on the western flank of Serengeti National Park, the Tanzanian government established the Grumeti Reserve in 1994. Subsequently, in 2002, the right to oversee and conserve the 350,000 acres that makeup Grumeti was conferred to the Grumeti Community and Wildlife Conservation Fund (renamed to Grumeti Fund).

Western Corridor Overview

The Western corridor of Serengeti National Park extends from the center of the park, stretching towards Lake Victoria. Known for its lush, verdant landscape, it presents an ideal canvas for any wildlife lover. Rich in biodiversity, it offers unique opportunities for game drives and safari adventures.
What sets it apart, you ask? It’s the blend of scenic beauty, unique geographical features, and the incredible richness of wildlife.

Eyeing an unrivaled luxury safari adventure? Deviate off the beaten path and towards the remote western regions of the Serengeti. Here, the Serengeti is less traveled, a fascinating truth evident in the scarce lodges dotting the pristine landscape and the exceptional sightings of fellow safari vehicles.

Nested within this wilderness is Grumeti, one of the Serengeti National Park’s most finely preserved secrets. It’s a remote gem hidden in a serene corner of the Serengeti, offering an extraordinary wildlife-watching opportunity enhanced by the sense of exclusivity that results from its remoteness.

In Grumeti, bespoke luxury defines your wilderness stay, with guest numbers being deliberately kept to about sixty visitors housed in select high-end Serengeti camps. In this exclusive reserve, it’s all quality and bare serenity, empty of typical tourist crowds.

Craving a personal experience that distances you from large crowds? Grumeti, your individual private Serengeti, is waiting for you.

Wildlife Viewing in Western Serengeti

A visit to Western Serengeti offers an opportunity to view an assortment of wildlife you won’t find anywhere else. These include the iconic African Elephant and the elusive Leopard.

Renowned for its remarkable pride of lions boasting between 20 and 60 majestic felines, Grumeti presents unparalleled opportunities to witness these kings of the Serengeti. And with Grumeti’s solitude, you’re likely to enjoy these rare sightings all to yourself. Embrace the luxe life with an unforgettable wild encounter in Grumeti. Other wildlife highlights include hippos, crocodiles, and numerous bird species.

The wildlife at Grumeti is truly exceptional. You’re so close to the action, that it feels like you could almost touch the predators! It’s an experience where you feel completely immersed in nature.

The Great Migration in Western Serengeti

Do you know that Western Serengeti is a vital part of the annual Wildebeest migration? Yes, each year, the region witnesses a stunning influx of over a million animals making a desperate journey in search of greener pastures. You can witness this spectacular show of nature from the comfort of your luxurious accommodation.

The timeframe of May through July, brimming with visitors, aligns with the thrill-filled sight of the Great Migration as it majestically sweeps through the Western Corridor in its epic northbound journey. The crossing of the Grumeti River, though it doesn’t share the same fame as its northern sibling, should not be underestimated.

The Grumeti River presents the initial monumental challenge for the migrating herds. Hence, get yourself privileged to observe this selective occurrence, while other tourists, dwelling in the northern territories, eagerly anticipate the arrival of the herds.

Experience the Unique Charm of Walking Safaris at Grumeti Game Reserve

If you’re looking for a unique experience in Serengeti National, Grumeti Game Reserve offers a distinctive treat. Unlike the majority of locations in the national park, Grumeti allows visitors to engage in exciting walking safaris.
Picture this: You spend numerous hours on foot in the bush, guided by a local expert. You learn about the fascinating world of birds and insects, track a varied range of animals, and delve into the cultural and medicinal uses of indigenous plants. Quite the adventure, right?
Plus, as Grumeti Game Reserve falls outside the boundaries of Serengeti National Park, the guide can operate with much more freedom, unbound by park regulations. This is what sets us apart and allows for a broader diversity of safari activities.
And there’s more! Not only can vehicle safaris be enjoyed during the day, but we also offer unique night drives. That’s right – imagine the thrill of off-road driving in the quiet hours, making the most of special sightings. It is an opportunity you don’t want to miss!
