Grumeti Travel Guide - Travel to Grumeti
Private Western Concession
An enormous private concession of 350,000 acres, Grumeti is a wild stretch of northern Tanzania. Bordering on the western edge of the Serengeti National Park and the Western Corridor, Grumeti takes its name from the famous Grumeti River which meanders through the Serengeti providing an important water source to millions of animals before eventually draining into Lake Victoria.
Also known as Singita Grumeti Reserves the area forms part of the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem, and is a relatively untouched wilderness. The absence of fencing allows the migration of game between the park and the concession. The reserve is home to varying habitats including open plains, rugged rocky outcrops, woodlands and riverine forests.
Grumeti forms part of the world-famous migratory route. The Great Migration traditionally moves through Grumeti Reserves between June and August. However, there is an abundance of wildlife year-round.
