The rainy season may be low season in Tanzania, but it’s peak season in the Western Corridor of the Serengeti. As the Wildebeest Migration moves towards the Grumeti River, so too do tourists looking to see a river crossing.
Budget Lodges in the Western Serengeti
Due to the seasonal nature of the region and the fact it is most popular during the rainy season, camping is not a possibility in the Grumeti region.
If you’re on a tight budget, consider staying in a budget or medium lodge (or camping) in the Central Serengeti.
Medium Lodges in the Western Serengeti
The Grumeti region is serviced by a number of affordable tented camp options for those wanting to experience the Wildebeest Migration.
Grumeti Migration Camp
Located just outside of the Serengeti National Park in the Grumeti Private Reserve, Grumeti Migration Camp offers a different experience than you might get elsewhere in the Serengeti ecosystem.
Its private location means you’re away from the worst of the crowds, but you’re still close enough to the Serengeti property to arrange hot air balloon safaris or venture deeper into the wilderness.
Each private tent provides guests with a private balcony, ensuite bathroom facilities, and a front row seat to the Wildebeest Migration.
Recommended For: Those wanting a base between Seronera and Grumeti.
Mbugani Migration Camp
Another mobile camp that follows the movements of the Wildebeest Migration, Mbugani sets up shop in the Kirawira region of the Western Corridor every May through July.
Boasting 24/7 electricity, large ensuite bathrooms, and huge viewing windows from which to see all of the action, Mbugani is our go-to recommendation in the Grumeti area.
Recommended For: Families.
Luxury Lodges in the Western Serengeti
There are some truly stunning luxury properties in the Serengeti’s famous Western Corridor. While some lay in the nearby Grumeti private reserve, they all offer access to the Serengeti proper as well.
&Beyond Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp
The epitome of African luxury, the &Beyond brand has become synonymous with both extravagance and offering completely unique accommodation experiences.Their Grumeti Tented Camp is no different, with its Grumeti location offering spectacular views of both river crossings and the lodge’s private hippo pool.
Features of note include its outdoor kitchen and dining area, its domed bar, and its wonderful African design. It truly is something special.
Recommended For: Honeymooners and older couples.
Singita Sasakawa Lodge
A lodge that practically oozes old world charm, Sasakawa Lodge gives guests the experiences of being explorers from Europe or the Americas in deepest, darkest Africa.
From claw-footed bathtubs to leather scented libraries to the on-site tennis court, this is a lodge that very much makes you feel like the wealthy of old without taking you away from the African landscape you’ve come to experience.
Recommended For: Families and those wanting a break from tented camps.
Serena Kirawira Tented Camp
Part of the popular Serena brand of luxury properties, Kirawira Camp is the jewel in the Serena crown.
With twenty-five ensuite tens set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Serengeti’s Western Corridor, Kirawara Tented Camp prides itself on its gourmet dining, its old world meets African aesthetic, and its selection of fine wines for those all-important sundowners.
Recommended For: Those looking for a Serena circuit discount.
A more affordable luxury option than some of the other lodges on this list, Mbalageti nonetheless offers first class accommodation and dining facilities for those in the Western Serengeti.
Offering both tented rooms and chalet style cabins, Mbalageti has something for everybody. Whether it’s a rustic tent with a bathtub on its private balcony or a cozy cabin with all of the comforts of home, you’re in good hands.
Recommended For: Barefoot luxury.
One of Shadows of Africa’s favourite lodges, Melia Serengeti comes into the market as a perfect halfway point between conventional luxury properties and the decadence of lodges like Four Seasons Safari Lodge.
Boasting an infinity pool with a stunning savanna view, three fantastic restaurants, an on-site spa, and world-class service, it’s a gorgeous home away from home that is ideally located to access both the Central and Western Serengeti.
