Region Spotlight: Maasai Kopjes

Tremendous wildlife viewing opportunities exist at the Maasai Kopjes. The craggy hollows and smooth granite crests of these towering granite kopjes are home to one of the Serengeti Lion Project’s most studied prides, called the Maasai lion pride. The nearby swamp, where the rare Bohor reedbuck can be found, is also the famous hunting spot for the resident lion pride. Kopjes are remarkable in that they have their own little ecosystem with a range of vegetation and wildlife including hyrax, mongoose, lizards and birds.
