Maasai rock paintings

No image
A site containing ancient rock paintings that were made by the Maasai clans that used to live in the Moru Kopjes area of Serengeti national park. Made using natural materials such as clay and ash, they are part of a larger collection found in different parts of the plains such as Nasera rock albeit better preserved.

What to do there?Game drives of it and the nearby areas, or take a break from your safari and wander around the site - trying to spot the paintings some of which may have faded.

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 from February to June, though you may have to contend with the rainy season that goes from March to June - during which having a good 4x4 would be a good idea. But On the good side, the wildebeest and Zebra are in this area during that time, with their accompanying predators - and the vegetation turned a deep green.
