Beautiful, hot and arid, dotted with hectares of superbly rugged rocky land, Nasolot National Reserve is located to the North of Mount Mtelo. Remotely located, few visitors have had a chance to be in the presence of this subtly disturbed space on earth. Standing impressively on the periphery of the reserve is the Nasolot Hill surrounded by magnificently rolling rocky outcrops that makes for spectacular views of scenic landscapes.

Visitors to this paradise can enjoy spectacular views from Nasolot Hill, bird watching, camping, fishing and nature walks.
