Lake Kesile


A small and shallow alkaline lake located in the early stages of the Mbalageti river and the south eastern plains of Serengeti national park. It gets most of its water from rainfall, lake Ngorono south of it and streams that collect water from the surrounding plains.

The lake serves as a watering hole for animals in the area, making it a good destination for game drives

What to do there?Game drives, air safaris and balloon safaris particularly when the wildebeest and zebra are in the area, along with the animals that prey on them. There also is a rhino conservation project nearby that hosts black rhinos.

For a list of other attractions that you could visit in the area, please see the section below after map or the attractions page

Best time to visit?Any time during the first three months of every rear, when the wildebeest and zebra have started to migrate north. As during this time, there is a lot of wildlife activity and the plains are not yet soaked by the annual rains of march to June, allowing for easy access.

lake Kesile is located in the south eastern plains of Serengeti national park, just under a half hour drive from Naabi hill, Moru kopjes and lake Ndutu. For more information on this location, please see the map below.

How to get there?By air would be most convenient, flying from nearby cities and after what should be an amazing air safari of Serengeti and Ngorongoro conservation area, landing at the near by Kusini airstrip and using a prebooked vehicle to get to the lake.

Alternatively, you could also take the more scenic - land based route, driving in from Ndabaka or fort Ikoma gate in the north, or loduare gate in the south.
