What do do there?Game drives of it and nearby Simba kopjes, with the potential of spotting predators on the hunt. For a list of other attractions that you could visit in the area, please see the section below the map or the attractions page

Best time to visit?Any time from December to April every year, when the migrating wildebeest and Zebra are in the area or nearby lake Ndutu. However, the rainy season does begin in march, making the vegetation greener but at the same time turning some of the clay soil roads here into impassable marshes, to all but good 4x4's.

Location of Simba Kopjes Hippo Pool

This Hippo pool is located a short distance from, and on the left hand side of the road from Naabi hill to Seronera. It takes about a 20 minute drive to get there from the gate.

For more information on this location, please see the map below.

How to get there?By vehicle, whether privately owned, rental or tours and travel one - driving in from Naabi hill gate or other gates of the park. As it is a bit off the main road road, you may need a good 4x4 if visiting during the rainy season.

You could also get here by air, though the nearest airstrips are at Seronera or lake Ndutu, and a vehicle would still be needed to get around. But on the good side, it would provide a rare opportunity to see Serengeti and possibly, nearby Ngorongoro from above.

For more information on park fees and tariffs, please see the TANAPA website.
