Conservation Areas 50 m ↑ Northern Circuit, Arusha

The Nasera rock is situated about 20 kilometers North of Olduvai Gorge in Ngorongoro Conservation Area. It’s just a few kilometers off the shifting sand behind Gol Mountain. It is a spectacular, 50 meter (165 feet) high inselberg located in the southwestern part of the Gol Mountains. The name is a Maasai-inspired word, ‘’Naasira,’’ which means striped, written or drawn. The drawings are said to be made by Maasai Nasera rock during ancient times when they used the area as temporal settlements or hiding burrows.
