The Maasai Kopjes form the eastern boundary of the magnificent Seronera River Valley. Massive stacks of boulders seem to have been heaped upon one another and rise above the landscape, abruptly interrupting the smooth skyline of the surrounding plain. These heavily vegetated kopjes( Dutch for outcrops) stand like sentinels overlooking the broad entrance to the infamous Seronera River Valley. The craggy hollows and smooth granite crests of these towering kopjes are the home base to one of the Serengeti's most legendary lion prides called the Maasai Lion Pride. The Maasai Lion Pride, along with the Sametu Lion Pride to the southeast, make up two of the biggest prides in the Serengeti.
