Enjoy a Serengeti East Safari during October and November when the mega herds return from Masai Mara National Reserve to the rich plains of the Serengeti National Park, east of the Grumeti River, passing through Lobo and Western Loliondo and under the majestic Gol mountains, at the northern edge of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Here, you will find one of the utmost concentrations of cheetahs in the Serengeti, preying on half a million indigenous gazelles and impalas including migrants. The mountains shelter colonies of Ruppell’s Griffon Vultures. Wildebeest cover the central-east valley’s on their way north after the long rains, and some pour through the scenic bottleneck of the Angata Kiti pastures during the shorter rains on their way back south. But with or without the migratory millions, this area is breathtaking for its immensity and feeling of freedom. These lands, the way Africa used to be, are home to the nomadic Maasai people, a fitting destination for a Tanzania cultural safari.
Lobo, at the eastern edge of the Serengeti National Park and on a small stretch of the Grumeti River that offers excellent year-round game observation, gives unrivaled views of grassland and kopjes. Farther south, outside the game park border, and almost a third as large as the Serengeti National Park, Loliondo is a private concession and more versatile. You may walk and drive without restriction, day and night, on road and off, taking packed meals or dining out in any location you choose. This is truly freedom. You can lose yourself in appreciation of the way of life led by primitive sapiens, with all the visceral satisfactions this entails . Links with the native Maasai community enable you to experience and appreciate a distinct way of life. Your tribal and wildlife tour of Eastern Africa will liberate you by the discoveries you make about who you truly are.
