, that sits on its south western end, with nothing but rural Mwanza villages and farms nearby.What to do there?

Location of Handajega gate
Handajega gate is located on the western end of Serengeti national park, just a few kilometres south east of the more used Ndabaka gate
. Nearby are several tented campsites, hotels along with old airstrips.
For more information on this location, please see the map below.How to get there?
By air or by vehicle, though trying to go into the park, then Ndabaka gate would be a better option, as the road to Handajega takes you through rural Mwanza. There is no preference for 4x4's, but they are more convenient - especially in the rainy season.
There are airstrips in the area, though we are not sure as to whether they are still used. Thus air access to this location may require use of other airstrips such as Kirawira B airstrip
or even airports in Mwanza
