Dramatic River Crossings and Year-Round Wildlife
Open Year Round
Ideally located only 320 yards from the famous Mara River, set amidst acacia trees and the whispering grasslands of northern Serengeti is River Camp. This 10-tented camp offers quick access to viewing the spectacular drama of the wildebeest river crossings during the long dry season months of July thru October. All year long the Mara River attracts numerous resident wildlife big and small such as large herds of elephant, eland and cape buffalo. Antelopes of many kinds also enjoy the higher elevation, cooler temperatures, and excellent grazing. Lions, leopards and cheetah maintain their territories throughout the year. River Camp remains popular even during the green season (November thru June) for guests who want to be away from the crowds but still experience resident wildlife and great cat activity.
