A small cluster of rock hills or Koppie
that are located in the south eastern plains of Serengeti national park
. They serve as a refuge for both plants and animals, a more hospitable environment when compared to the sunny plains.
For this reason, they are a good destination for game drives - with some of the animals you may see here being lions.What to do there?
Game drives around the many koppie in the vicinity, though you may need a good guide to spot the predators. The area could also be viewed from above using either an air or balloon safari.
