On your way to or from Serengeti, Naabi Hill was the perfect place to stop, a true boundary. Climbing to the top of the hill made me realise what I had actually been in for the past two days. Magnificent endless plains (Siringet) and truly endless

This place is cool, with stacks of Landcruisers in the parking lot awaiting entrance into the Serengeti. We ate lunch here while our guide got us through. The hill offers a great view of the Serengeti. Our guide from Bramwel, Freddie, encountered a problem with our entrance due to a question about our daughter's age. As with all our dealings... More

The special campsites have no facilities at all and you are camping in the wilderness of the serengeti alone. This is what we wanted and this is what we got - loved it

This little hill at the entrance to Serengeti NP gives stunning views of the plains and gives a real insight to just how huge the park is. It's a good place to spend some of the time whilst waiting for your guide to get your permit.

As the entrance to the Serengeti, Naabi Hill allowed us to appreciate the vastness of the plains; it is truly an ocean of golden plains. Beautiful. Our Proud African Safari guide, Adam, spotted a cheetah with her two cubs at a kill less than a mile from Naabi Hill. What a way to begin our safari into the Serengeti! Thanks... More

Naabi Hill is located at the official check-in point for Serengeti National Park, 7km (4.3 miles) inside the southern entrance. Here, your guide will need to check-in and pay the entrance fee and the newly implemented process, especially during the busy season, is likely to take at least 30 minutes and possibly much longer. The good news is that there... More

Stopped there for lunch, the place offers great view and some amazing lizards. Good place to be when waiting to enter the Serengeti. It is a little too crowded so we couldn't see as many lizards as I hoped to.

We stopped here for paper work and climbed this small hill to get the great views of the Serengeti Plains. Awesome views.

This is right at the entrance to the Serengeti national park where the fee payment has to be done. So while your guard is figuring out the payments, this is a nice way to pass some time. Climb the small hill to get a good view of the Serengeti park
