Kogatende Airstrip – Your Gateway to Northern Serengeti Safaris

Kogatende airstrip is a small airstrip in Serengeti, Tanzania, and it is the gateway to the northern circuit of Serengeti National Park where paradise beckons. Located at the banks of the Mara River, it serves as the most convenient way to access the most remote areas of the park and is strategically situated in the migration corridor where hundreds of thousands of wildebeests are seen crossing the Mara River during the great migration.

The most comfortable mode to travel to Serengeti National Park is by means of short shuttle flights to Kogatende airstrip, which are really convenient due to the short one-hour flight versus the 5 to 6-hour road journey from Arusha. Arusha is a city connecting to many National parks and gives convenient access to several lodges neighboring Kogatende airstrip.

The accommodations include Singita Mara River Tented Camp, which is heart-enticing camp with an extra unique interior, leaving visitors with a thought of wanting to stay since it is a home far away from home. Lamara Kuria Hills offers a good location for viewing wildlife, with neat bedrooms accompanied by the art of furniture that makes visitors dream of America as they take their champagne near the infinity pool.

Serengeti Bush Tops always provides the best services, so missing this beauty is like missing out on having a chat with Miss World. Nomad Lamai always shines like stars in the sky but shouts loudly with its excellent menu displaying different services rendered, including delicious dishes.

Kimondo Migration Camp offers an amazing area where you are given all the privacy you need with a private balcony, bathrooms containing both warm and cold water, and flushing toilets. There is also well-spaced parking space, well-protected with skilled security personnel, spa, massage area, to mention but a few.

Transfers to and from Kogatende airstrip are usually included when staying at any of these accommodations.

A flying package is possible to book at a giveaway price, and you are able to enjoy your journey peacefully while witnessing the beautiful landscapes and picture-perfect views over the Tanzanian plains because these short flights are an experience in itself and very scenic.

Once you reach Kogatende airstrip, you are a step closer to your dream safari.
