Be sure to take the trail up to the viewpoint at the top, beautiful views over the Serengeti, birds, butterflies and beautiful coloured lizards!

Nab Hill is the main entrance into the Serengeti. The site affords a needed stop either going or coming. Restrooms, picnic facilities and shops provide a rest from the rough roads.

Be sure to take the trail to the top of Naabi for a chance to view the great herds around the hill during wildebeest calving season in February.

The best part of this stop were the lovely birds and lizards we found. Otherwise it is mainly a rest stop just outside the National Park.

An okay place to stop on your way into the Serengeti but don't go out of your way to stop here. You can get a fair bit of supplies here as well as food, drinks and toilets.

The Naabi Hill Gate is very comfortable because it has clean restrooms and nice tables for a short meal. I recommend going on the short hike on the hill, the view is great!

Located at the entrance to Serengeti, this should not be missed. We stopped here for lunch while our guide filled in all the papers for our safari. There is a small hike to get up the hill where you have an amazing view over a small part of the park. From here you can see all kinds of animals, but... More
