“Lot of Information which will help you to understand park and wild life and Masi People...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

I like this Observation hill because they have lot of information. View is great but that you will find it all over the place. So, don't drive too far for the view but if you are interested knowing more about park, animals, Masi People, why they kill lion, etc., this is the best place to visit.

“nice view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We walked up here and had our lunch so were able to relax and really take in the scenery which is a great thing to do on safari. Lovely view with a picnic. Work is being done at the site itself to improve facilities so well done.

“Breakfast overlooking the Kilimanjaro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Excellent location for a breakfast with a view. Hundreds of animals all around, view of the lake in the foreground and the Kili in the background.

The little brown bugs almost ate me alive. Bring protection! (though not sure what, they were apparently enjoying even my DEET- insect repellent).

“Excellent view of the park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

The view from the observation hill is breathtaking especially in the evening. Its a view from the top of almost the entire park. One can view elephants in the swamps below

“Good view and perspective”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Interesting hill with good view of park and environs. Probably could see Kilamanjaro on a clear day. Some religious groups seem to use the Observation area as a place to hit up visitors for donations, which is always a little disconcerting, but overall nice to have a little climb and walk up to the observation area for the unobstructed view.
