Moru Kopjes – Serengeti
Out of the Serengeti plains rise the great Moru Kopjes. Huge granite rock formations like mini-mountains in the sea of grass. This is an area of stunning beauty and excellent game viewing all year round.
Few trees grow in the Serengeti, as the hard volcanic crust is thick and impenetrable. In the Moru Kopjes, trees have taken root in the crevices of rocks. Vines snake the surface of the boulders and bushes spring out of cracks.
Water is trapped in the area for much of the year providing water for a lot of resident game. Predators love the rocks as they provide the ideal look out points. Plains game use this area because of the water and it provides precious shade. The area has historic interest, with Gong Rock being used for generations of tribal contact.
From Moru it is easy to get to the southern plains or to go to the north of the Serengeti. There are no lodges in the area so a camp here gives you a great wilderness experience in this magical and very special area.
