Kogatende, which is in Northern Serengeti, near the Mara River is a great place to get away from the crowds since it is secluded and inaccessible, sandwiched between the Central Serengeti and Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve to the north.
Travelers who make it to this part of the Serengeti will be rewarded with breathtaking scenery, including green rolling hills, granite outcrops, and acacia woodlands dotting open savanna, incredible wildlife, and, most importantly, massive herds of wildebeest and zebra crossing the croc-infested Mara River during the Great Migration in June and July, and again in September and October. This area of the park is also home to a number of other attractions.
This section of the park is also home to the Serengeti’s highest concentration of elephants, as well as large concentrations of lion, leopard, cheetah, and hyena, as well as a variety of resident species including giraffe, topi, eland, and hippo.
The Mara River, which flows through the Northern Serengeti before entering Lake Victoria in the west, is without a doubt the centerpiece of this isolated Serengeti region. The river is home to massive hippos and a variety of wildlife, including giraffe, elephant, leopard, and lion.
Thousands upon thousands of wildebeest and zebra battle currents and massive Nile crocodiles to reach the opposite side of the Mara River, where they make their journey north into Kenya’s Masai Mara, between July and September.
