No image
A cluster of rocky hills or Koppie that are located in the southern part of Serengeti national park. They serve as a tourist attraction both for the amazing landscapes of the area as well as the animals that feed or live here.

What makes it even more special, is its location at the starting stages of the wildebeest migration and near where they calve. This enables visitors to see the migrating wildebeest up close, along with their newly born calves and accompanying horde of predators.

What to do there?Game drives, or spend time at the nearby campsites, lodges and tented camps. 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?In the early months of the year, when the wildebeest start to move up north, or the end of the year, when they are calving nearby, though you may need a good 4 x 4 to be here during the rainy season of march to june.
