After a lovely stay at Legendary Lodge Arusha, we moved on to Legendary Expeditions’ Serengeti Camp for a photo safari and to see the great migration of wildebeest, zebras, various antelope and other animals. A terrific moving map of the route of the great migration can be found here: http://www.expertafrica.com/tanzania/info/serengeti-wildebeest-migration.

Near our landing strip in the Serengeti. Much greener than we had expected.
First sighting of Wildebeests in single file, migrating along a game trail.
The Mara River is the border between Kenya on the north and Tanzania on the south. It serves as a difficult obstacle for the migrating Wildebeests and Zebras.
Our safari vehicles awaited us at Kogatende Airstrip.
The camp is set up in different areas throughout the year according to where the great migration is expected to pass; it is the definition of luxury camping.
