No image
A natural stream of water that seeps from the nearby Kuka hills, a short distance from the northern Serengeti border. The stream forms the start of the Bologonja river, that feeds the Mara river further north from here.

The area has a flourishing ecosystem that includes a growing forest and animals that either live here of come to drink or graze, promising tourists the chance to see something interesting.

What to do there?Game drives of it and nearby areas, with more information available at the gate nearby. Animals that you could see there include elephants, buffaloes and a wide variety of birds.

Best time to visit Any time after the annual rainy seasons, when the roads are dry enough to easily drive on and the spring's water volume bolstered. The wildebeest migration is usually in the area during October and November, but heads south of here until June of the following year.

Location of Bologonja springsBologonja springs are located at the north western base of Kuka hills, and in the northern area of Serengeti national park. It also sits right next to Bologonja gate, and near the road to Keekorok.

For more information on this location, please see the map below.

How to get there?By vehicle or by air, with the latter using the Lobo airstrip or other airstrips in Serengeti, then a prearranged vehicle for the rest of the way. This method also provides magnificent views of the Serengeti from above.

The longer - land based route is usually done as part of a larger tour, taking a week or more to get there from Ndabaka or Naabi hill gate. However, a more direct drive could take no more than half a day to cover the same distance.

This is a less visited portion of the park, thus 4x4's would perform better, although they are not required. Vehicles used could be rentals or private cars.
