By Guide David Chando – The Serengeti in June
June is one of the more spectacular times to visit the Serengeti. It is a dynamic time for a safari. June is the season of change with the great migration pushing northward as the green season slowly gives way to the long dry season. This was another great safari for me this June. We wrapped up our trip on June 8th and I am excited to get back out to the Serengeti for a late June safari.
My guests arrived into Kilimanjaro on Tuesday 28th May 2013 and departed Saturday June 08 when they flew back to the USA, Colorado. This was their first time in Africa and they were so happy, seeing the great herds of wildbeests and zebras who were migrating northward approaching Bologonja springs, which means in a few days time they will cross the Sand River. Some highlights are as follows:
Zebra migration in the Central Serengeti
Lonely male lion at Gol Kopjes, East Serengeti
Mother cheetah with two cubs and a kill in the Gol Kopjes area of the East Serengeti
Sunrise in the North Serengeti
Two female lions at Tagora Plains in the Central Sernegeti
