Nyikani Migration Camps - Kogatende detail

Nyikani migration camps located in the Serengeti ecosystem, move twice a year to ensure its guests are very well placed to witness the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra. From December through March, the migration moves in and out of the Ndutu area. Ndutu is located in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, just south of Serengeti National Park. Nyikani migration camp location provides easy access to prime game viewing areas around Lakes Ndutu and Masek. In addition to the almost two million wildebeest and zebra that move through the area each year, Ndutu is home to cheetahs, lions, giraffes, and hundreds of bird species. During February’s calving season, the wildebeest gives birth to 8,000 babies a day. From late May through October, The Camp is located in Northern Serengeti. The camp is close to the Mara River, allowing easy access to several river crossing points in the area. During this time of year, the wildebeest migration crosses the Mara River back and forth from Tanzania to Kenya. River crossings are common with crocodiles, hippos, and large cats scattered throughout the area.
