Ol Karien Gorge & Nasera Rock

Ol Karien Gorge

With its vertical rocky sides is home to a large colony of Ruppell’s griffon vultures. This is one of only a few breeding colonies of these huge birds, who are the most common Serengeti vultures. They circle slowly above the gorge waiting to catch the thermals that will take them soaring over the Serengeti plains.

Nasera Rock

A huge granite monolith also at the edge of the Gol Mountains in northern Tanzania. Wildebeest roam on the plains around the rock, baboons climb its sides, and a wide variety of bird life is to be seen.
The ideal time to visit is December through May, but tours are available year round.
