Flycatcher Bologonja Camp

Serengeti National Park

According to the season our camps in Serengeti National Park and bordering Ngorongoro Conservation Area are placed where you are as close as possible to the impressive big herds of the wildebeests and zebras. Although the exact location of the migration cannot be predicted, you can always be certain to come across many other animals on interesting game drives.

In the dry season from July to October the herds head towards northern Serengeti and the Mara River where water is always present. Where you can find hoofed animals, you can also find predators! The area is very different from the grassy plains in the South. In addition, there are many species that live here permanently.

The camp is situated in the Kuka Hills between Bologonja Springs and the Sand River on the border with Kenya. From the camp you have a marvelous view over the plains as far as the Masai Mara.

The nearest airstrip is Lobo (distance 40 km, about 75 minutes’ drive).

GPS coordinates: 1°43'40.9"S 35°12'40.1"E

Game drives

«Bologonja» with its hill chains, tree and grass savannahs, where there are numerous natural drainage ditches with residual water resources and individual springs, is particularly interesting between July and October, when the large herds of wildebeest join the local species such as giraffe, buffalo and impala.

The wildebeests and zebras migrate back and forth between northern Serengeti and Masai Mara, which are separated by the Mara River. With «safari luck» and patience, you can experience an impressive river crossing on a game drive to the Mara River in «Kogatende» (the distance is 80 km).

Game drives in a southern direction to «Lobo» are also within reach of Bologonja Camp (the distance is 40 km).
