We're planning a trip to Africa next year and one of the things we'd like to see is the wildebeest crossing of the Mara River. A few yrs ago we did the Northern circuit in Tanzania (Manyara, Serengeti, NG Crater) in early Feb and it was phenomenal so now we'd like to go to a different area and the wildebeest crossing sounds like an excellent thing to witness.
I've heard that the kogatende region is where this crossing happens and that the best time to see it is Sept/Oct. Can anyone verify this? Suggested itinerary (ie what else is there to see in that area)?
We'd probably go for 10 - 14 days and will do the private safari route again (ie only the 2 of us and our driver in the safari vehicle) as that worked out really well. Also, we want to keep our driving times/day to no more than 4 or 5 hrs.
Thanks for your help!
