You can get a few nice photos from this spot, especially on a clear day. The informational signs are also interesting.

“Great stop for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

This is a very convenient place to stop for a picnic lunch. There are bathrooms at the base, then you hike up (less than five minutes of stairs). There are a few seats at the top in the pagoda, or else you can just sit on the wall and read all the placards about the animals and the park.

“Long climb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Observation Hill is for the fit safari travellers because there are many steps. However when you reach the top you are rewarded with spectacular views of the savannah. When I was there in November I climbed to the top only to run back down because there were lots of bees around.
