The name Serengeti originates from the Masai word Siringitu and means endless plains. You will see why the Masai gave this region this name as the grassland savannah stretches to the horizon in the South and is only interrupted by the so-called kopjes, These kopjes are bizarre rock formations formed by the weathering of granite outcrops. The plains are the perfect hunting grounds for leopards and other big cats; you will have a good chance to view these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat through the open roof of the vehicle. In the afternoon, you will reach the destination for the day, the Seronera Valley in the central Serengeti area.

Jones Gap State Park Marietta S.C. USA


As soon as you turn on to Jones Gap Road, your spirit is essentially woed.

Upon arrival there is one of two parking lots to choose from, and the driving is done, it is recommended to visit the office and learning center at the upper parking lot before deciding on either one.

Whether your intent is to Cycle, Hike, Picnic, Photography, Fishing, relax or just to bring the kids out to the learning center or playground to have some fun, You`ll instantly realize your nature adventure has just begun.

From the avid to experienced hikers that challenge these trails, the hikes are not for the squeamish at heart, it is imperative to purchase a trail map and orientate yourself with the colored trail markers before you start.

The dangers of rocky, slippery conditions, snakes, wildlife, fatigue, and sheer cliffs I must impart,
so don`t forget (or keep in mind) : Proper attire, a walking stick, plenty of water (if you have room in the backpack, a set of binoculars and first aid kit and maybe a snack), and to fill out a hiker registration form at the trail head on your journey before you depart.

The water constantly moving among the rocks is like a symphony to the ear,
when in reality, it`s literally nature`s livelihood we hear.

Jones Gap State Park Joins Caesar`s Head State Park to encompass over 13,000 acres with over 60 miles of trails for one to explore, with geographic marvels such as: Rainbow Falls, Jones Gap Falls, Dargan`s Cascade, Raven Cliff Falls, Hospital Rock, Weight Watchers Rock and the Rim of the Gap… you can return here  year after year and find another gem to adore.

For whatever reason or purpose you come to Jones Gap to achieve, you will most likely find it difficult to leave.
