|In the Serengeti itself, the main habitats are:
- The short grass plains in the south-west. This is where the huge concentration of wildebeest is to be found from December to May, when most calves are born and the rut takes place. There is no permanent water in this area.
- The long grass plains are in the south-west of the reserve, but further east than the short grass plains.The Seronera Part HQ is in this area.
- The northern part of the reserve, from Seronera to the Kenya border consists of woodland, Lobo Hill and Gallery Forest, intertwined by rivers. This is part the Wildebeest migration route in June and November. From July to October, most of the wildebeest are in Kenya's Masai Mara.
- The Western corridor has two main rivers, the Grumeti and the Mbalageti, which flow to lake Victoria, just outside the park. The best time to visit this area is from June to October.
A big blow-up from a small section of a slide of a Klipspringer. The steepest kopje areas are the best places to look for Klipspringer, and this one was in a group of three on Lobo Kopje. We also saw one on the Shetani lava flow on our first trip. It walks on the tips of its hooves, and has superb climbing and jumping abilities, which help to keep it safe from predators, to which, at only c.52cm tall, it would otherwise be very vulnerable.
