    A group of Koppie or rocky hills located inside the Serengeti national park - along the road to Seronera from Naabi hill gate. They act as a home to several plant and animal species - a good place for game viewing especially lions and leopards who spend most of their afternoons here.

    What to do there?Game viewing, mostly lions - usually one den that can be spotted with some searching, or following where most of the tours vehicles are headed. There also are a number of birds and plant species that may be viewed in the area.

    Best time to visitAny time of the year, as the roads to it can be used even during the rains. But the early months of the year may be perfect for viewing the wildebeest migration on the plains.

    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 thereBy 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 website
