The locations of these migratory camps are carefully plotted to coincide with the documented movements of the annual Great Migration as it traverses the Serengeti plains. Having secured some of the Serengeti’s best semi-permanent campsites, we are able to bring our Serengeti Under Canvas guests as close as possible to the migration or resident game. These campsites are all prebooked for &Beyond’s use, allowing us tremendous flexibility in moving our camps according to the expected migration movements.
A HIPPOPOTAMUS SAVED A WILDEBEEST FROM A CROCODILE MOUTH
It was around 12.50 pm whilst watching a herd of wildebeest crossing the Mara River. We had a look towards the other side of the river and we suddenly saw a massive Nile crocodile attacking a wildebeest! The crocodile was holding the wildebeest's leg and tried to drown it deep under the water. Suddenly a big bull of a hippopotamus emerged from nowhere and chased the crocodile. The wildebeest sneaked away into the shallow water by kicking the crocodile and managed to escape from the it’s mouth.
Despite the fact that the wildebeest was hurt and limping, it kept running until it disappeared into the bush and then, there was no lunch for poor crocodile.
