In the dry season, after the great herds have departed for the north, the Grumeti draws in large concentrations of resident wildlife. Elephant, cape buffalo, giraffe, zebra, gazelle, impala and topi all seek life sustaining water from the river. Sasakwa Lodge offers a constantly changing and completely private wildlife spectacle.
