Klein's gate

No image
An exit or entrance point near the north eastern border of Serengeti national park. Completely remote, it is used by those going to or coming from the Loliondo game controlled area, a rural Maasai teritory — with lake Natron on the eastern end.

The gate and the route is seldom used due to it being remote and the Loliondo route being uncharted territory, when compared to the TANAPA controlled parks. Still, part of the area is a wildebeest migration route, with some tented camps being situated there.

What to do there?Get your permits checked, or pay for them before entering or exiting the park. For a list of other attractions that you could see in the area, please see the map below.

Best time to visit?Any time of the year. Or the last months of the if intending to see the wildebeest migration in the area nearby.

Location of Klein's gateKlein's camp gate is located in a very remote part of north eastern Serengeti, and near its border with the Loliondo game controlled area. The gate itself sits on the road to lake Natron through rural areas north of Ngorongoro conservation area.

It is also a few kilometres north of Lobo. For more information on this location, please see the map below.

How to get there?By air or by vehicle, with the first using either the Klein's camp airstrip north of here, Lobo airstrip to the south or other airstrips in Serengeti. Either way, you would have to arrange for transport once in the area.

The more scenic land based route could be done as a circuit from either lake Natron and Oldoinyo Lengai or from the south through Ngorongoro conservation area and Serengeti. Driving time could be anything from a day or a week — depending on how many spots you would like to see.

Either way, some spare fuel and water might come in handy as fuel stations - especially for petrol are scarce in the area.

There is no preference for 4x4s, and both rentals and privately owned vehicles can be used. For more information on park fees and tariffs, please see the TANAPA website.
