Beautiful view of the savannah. Worth going up the hill for it. There are lots of birds there and a small monkey who eats up tourists discarded food.

Nice views is about it. There’s no soap in the bathroom, which is par for the course at several parks in Kenya.

Our tour guide organized refreshments at the summit just as the sun was setting and the cloud cover over Kilimanjaro was dissolving. How wonderful is that !

Visited in AUgust 2018. Its a small walk upto the top after the dusty ride to reach the hill. Its to have a bird's eye view of the park. They have made a small point for people to rest and have lunch, spend some time...More

The view is worth the short climb! If possible organise with your travel agent or hotel to have a sundowner here!

A nice little hill where tourists can have their lunch whilst enjoying uninterrupted views of the National Park. The swamps nearby house a 2-3 herds of Hippos relaxing there.

It is a good short walk to the top. Has a great view and washrooms are a big relief after a long drive. Don't miss the birds near the water tank coming to drink from the taps.
