The migration herds still remain split; like ants strewn out in all directions. The heavy rains in central and northern Serengeti seemed to have confused the wildebeests as individuals and not the few large herds that typically migrate enmasse. From Seronera, to Grumeti, into the Grumeti Reserves and beyond the borders into Kenya, these large herbivores can be seen. So far we are still on track to have them come crashing back across the Mara River in early July (if not before, just to keep us on our toes !)

Located on the southern side of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Lake Eyasi is a unique location. It is dry and it is nome to the last nomadic tribe of Tanzania; the Hadzabe. Ziwam Lodge has been lovingly built and expertly designed to showcase this special location-far from the hustle and bustle of Tanzania's larger cities, each cottage has a rooftop ·stargazer' bed to fall asleep to infinite skies of nightfall in Africa. Ziwani Lodge offers only seven sophisticated accommodations (including 1 family cottage) on the shores of Lake Eyasi, with sweeping views toward the Great Rift Valley, boasting a beautiful swimming fool for cooling off on hot afternoons. Z1wani fits perfecUy in a northern anzania safan in style & elegance, combining the breathtaking landscapes and games and authentic, off the beaten track, cultural tourism with an ancientlribe.

The beauty of the northern Serengeti is now on show—one afternoon game drive can yield black rhino (mother & calf!), lazy lion pride with new cubs and the beginnings of the great Mara River wildebeest crossings. Couple this with unique landscapes, breathtaking sunsets and the feeling of being alive in Africa—you just can't beat it. This time of year, the area is quiet—but the area is magic. It almost feels as it you have the whole place to yourself and the wildlife comes out to greet and entertain only you. Return to camp, watch the hers meander ahead and the sun set behind—a G&T in hand help always helps to complete the scene!

Atop the ancient kopjes of the southern Serengeti, Kusini Kopjes Kambi is perched and poised in anticipation of another African dawn. IMth views from every tented suite across the incredible southern Serengeti plains, this is a property that commands attention. The elevation exercises it's right to the cool afternoon breezes, while guests are enthralled with the dramatic sinking of the blazing sun. A lrt campfire to mesmerize; a sundowner to savour in hand. Each of the tweive tented suites are meticulously decorated. MOJing towards the ensuite; glass-walled shower, double hand basins, flushing toilet, luxurious bath tub and egress to the outdoor rain shower. With a frontage of sliding glass at the anterior of the bedroom and the bathroom, the Serengeti landscape lay below with unhindered views - lazy pockets of acacia, whispering grassy plains and meandering wildlife on the verge of feeding success. Two inter-connected family suites with private lounge adjoining each. Families of up to five people can share the seclusion to unwind and interact freely.
