The-CheetahThe northern area of Serengeti is a huge pristine area with wooded rolling stunning hills with distributed open grassy areas plus huge granite outcrops. The area extends north approximately 55 miles from the Seronera region within central Serengeti up to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve. The majority of visitors to Serengeti never visit the northern area. It is simply hardly ever visited and continues to be an unexplored and un-tampered with wilderness filled with spectacular landscapes as well as numerous wild animals.

It is fascinating that the most renowned wildlife viewing areas in East Africa are in Tanzania’s central Serengeti   and Kenya’s Masai Mara reserve. Thousands of visitors yearly go to these two areas which are within the same ecosystem. Found between these two areas is northern Serengeti which receives hardly any visitors. the amount of Wildlife here in northern Serengeti is fascinating and even the thick woodlands make wildlife viewing more challenging however, this is better compensated by the spectacular scenery along with the fact that you will enjoy most wildlife viewing alone.

Northern Serengeti has a lot of occupant herbivores including Thomson’s gazelles, giraffes, impalas, elands, topis as well as hippos. This area is home to the greatest surviving population of elephants inside the Serengeti. These charming giants were regrettably poached severely in the 1980s and less than 100 survived through 1987 in northern Serengeti. With the help of the worldwide prohibition of ivory trade that was imposed in 1989, poaching of elephants came to an instant stop. From the time the ban on ivory trade was approved, the volume of elephants has progressively been growing in northern Serengeti as a result of immigration from the nearby Mara reserve plus natural recruitment in addition to the increase of local agricultural regions to the outside of this park forcing the wild animals inside the Serengeti. The enormous buffalo herds in the north faced a similar fate but they are likewise returning and some large herds are frequently observed around Lobo in northern Serengeti.

Likewise, Predators are very many in northern Serengeti but not as many as those in Central Serengeti! The thick bushes plus the woodlands in northern Serengeti cause it to be more difficult to view the predators. On the contrary, lions along with hyenas are commonly seen. However, Cheetahs are relatively distributed in smaller numbers in the northern woodlands but they are regularly seen remember the fact that they are extremely active during the day. At the same time Leopards are spread out fairly in the woodlands but they are harder to find in northern Serengeti.

The northern woodlands of the Serengeti ecosystem are dwelling to the huge migratory herds which include wildebeests plus zebras during the entire dry season. Having said that, the big herds usually stay in the distant north of the park dispersing into the adjoining Masai Mara during the peak of those dry months. Smaller sized herds of wildebeests usually are visible during game drives to the distant north. Zebra herds are more dispersed and are less difficult to see. Wildlife viewing is at its best in northern Serengeti as soon as the great herds begin moving through this region both to and from the nearby Masai Mara as well as the distant northern Serengeti. The northern migration usually moves through Serengeti’s northern area from the end of July to the start of August appearing and later on appear at the Mara watershed within Kenya at the start of August. On the contrary, the southern migration through the northern region takes place in mid to end of October. Even so, the exact timing of these migration movements alters from year to year and is entirely influenced majorly by the existing rainfall patterns.The northern area of Serengeti is a huge pristine area with wooded rolling stunning hills with distributed open grassy areas plus huge granite outcrops.
