Mwiba Wildlife Reserve
Mwiba is a 125,000-acre privately managed wildlife reserve. It borders onto Ngorongoro Conservation Area’s western boundary and the very southern part of Serengeti National Park in Northern Tanzania.
Originally part of the Makao Open Area, Mwiba reserve was established to improve wildlife conservation efforts. It protects an area under pressure from a growing human population encroaching on Serengeti from the west. It expands wildlife viewing areas to the South and West of Serengeti National Park in a private, low volume, limited access setting, an area where you are free of the otherwise common safari vehicles seen elsewhere in the National Parks.
Serengeti’s wildebeest migration passes through Mwiba between December and April. Characterized by rolling hills, kopjes, thickets, waterholes and (dry) rivers where pools form, it’s permanent water attracts wildlife all year round. It is an animal magnet when southern Serengeti and the Ngorongoro conservation areas dry out between July and November each year.
