This is not, in and of itself, a particular destination beyond the entry; but it is a landmark by which one can estimate distances and locations in the area since it is the high point on a very, very large plain.

Its the start point of the Serengeti Safari and has toilet facilities and coffee shop. There is a lookout point which is worth making the effort to do the short climb just to give a sense of perspective of the Serengeti. It can be busy, as mostly people have to go this way to enter the area.

While your guide and driver go about securing permits to enter the park you can eat your lunch, buy refreshments and souvenirs. Many birds, including a big stork, walk and fly around you.

This is the official entrance to the Serengeti National Park and the end of the Ngorongoro region. It is a congested gate area full of tour operators, rangers and independent travelers. There are bathrooms and a small shop to buy snacks, souvenirs or basic necessities.

Nice stop during the day for the views and a picnic. Nice clean toilet block! Panoramic 360 degrees views of the wildebeest herds. Giraffes were nearby eating from the acacia trees.

On your way to or from Serengeti, Naabi Hill was the perfect place to stop, a true boundary. Climbing to the top of the hill made me realise what I had actually been in for the past two days. Magnificent endless plains (Siringet) and truly endless

This place is cool, with stacks of Landcruisers in the parking lot awaiting entrance into the Serengeti. We ate lunch here while our guide got us through. The hill offers a great view of the Serengeti. Our guide from Bramwel, Freddie, encountered a problem with our entrance due to a question about our daughter's age. As with all our dealings... More

The special campsites have no facilities at all and you are camping in the wilderness of the serengeti alone. This is what we wanted and this is what we got - loved it

This little hill at the entrance to Serengeti NP gives stunning views of the plains and gives a real insight to just how huge the park is. It's a good place to spend some of the time whilst waiting for your guide to get your permit.
