Naabi Hill gate – Situated in Eastern Serengeti by the Ngorongoro conservation area, Naabi Hill serves as Serengeti National Park’s main entrance. After paying your entrance fee (or stopping so your safari guide can fill out paperwork), you can stretch your legs on Naabi Hill’s walking trail, which offers some of the best views of the Serengeti. This acacia-covered hill also acts as the home base for a pride of lions and welcomes millions of wildebeest, zebras and gazelles during their annual Great wildebeest migration to Eastern Serengeti to breed and find food.
Visitors enjoyed climbing Naabi Hill to take in stunning Serengeti land scape. If you want to spot a variety of wildlife, visit between December and June when The Great Migration’s animals roam the area. You’ll also find some of Serengeti National Park’s best facilities – like restrooms, a gift shop and a convenience store – in this part of the park. However, some travellers caution that this entrance point is crowded and that you’ll face long wait times to pay national park entrance fees however contact Great adventure safaris for more perfect tailor made safari package.
