“A great resting place for the lions”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

The grumeti river was where we got to see out first lion family.
Plus the excitement of crossing bridges that were still there from the second world war.

“Migration Destination”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Great area to watch the zebras and wildebeests on their migration. We watched them turn abruptly as they began their crossing: apparently the large number of crocodiles was not exactly appealing but it afforded us a wonderful opportunity to watch these animals in action: hundred and hundreds of them! There is a small swinging bridge where you can actually get out of your vehicle and walk across: wonderful place to stretch your legs and watch the birds and crocs!

We saw LOTS of hippos lounging in the sun-babies too. There was a large family of elephants, crocs and plenty of Zebra. Lovely spot to see lots of wildlife.

“Perfect timing for migration”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We arrived in perfect timing to see the migration streaming across the grassy plains and cross the river early June. The sight of 1000's of wildebeest and zebra is amazing as they cross the crocodile infested river. The number of vehicles with tourists on safari is a lot less than in central Serengeti, making it a much more enjoyable experience. Well worth the effort of getting up this far especially if you time your visit for the arrival of the migration.

“Fabulous to watch the great migration”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Amazing views of the crocodiles, hippos and of course most importantly the great migration occurring if you are lucky enough to be there to witness it, and fortunately for us we were!! Simply stunning and you really feel like you are in a David Attenborough documentary seeing it all unfold for yourself. Very emotional watching the migration happen.
