Location of Simba Kopjes
Simba Kopjes are located spread out on either side of the dirt road from Seronera to Naabi hill gate
- the only cluster of rocky hills on it. On either side of it are endless plains for as far as the eye can see.
For more information on its location, please see the map below.How to get there
By vehicle, as the nearest airstrips are either in Seronera
and lake Ndutu
- requiring about an hours drive to get to the Kopjes from there. Alternatively, if using a vehicle, then the place is about half an hour from Naabi hill gate, and an hour from Seronera.
Vehicles used could be a private ones, rentals, or tours and travel ones with no preference for the vehicle type - as long as it can handle the famous Serengeti bumpy roads. For information about park fees and permits, see the TANAPA websiteAbbreviations
