This took us by surprise as we were visiting the park during the dry season. It was nice to see all the greenery and wildlife around the water. Great pictures of the contrast of the dry, plains and then the green around the water.

We liked the Mara river better but this was still picturesque and full of hippos! Part of the Serengeti!

There is a lot of wildlife along the river and less human traffic than other parts of the centra region of the park but you will see other vehicles due to the number of people visiting the national park. We saw lots of elephants, hippos, lions, giraffes, zebras and the occasional leopard.

Had an early game viewing in this area, saw lots of hippos & crocs however the roads are bumpy. The river is located close to the Airstrip Experience walking across the hanging bridge !

This river in Serengeti NP is a great place to watch wildlife come and go. There are, as you might imagine, lots of hippos and crocodiles to watch laze around in the sun, but also lots of other animals who pop along for a drink or to bathe.

We walked on the bridge and saw so many hippos in the river. The river was full and water was flowing with crocs.

The views I had of this river and the wildlife around it were just wonderful. We stayed at a resort that backed on to it, watched elephants drink and frolic whilst in outdoor showers, watched wildebeest try and cross and Giraffe come down and gracefully lower themselves to drink and hydrate. A brilliant experience we wont forget in a hurry,... More
