Ngorongoro Crater

Your first glimpse of the stunning Ngorongoro Crater will likely be from the heavenly forested viewpoint that looks down upon its sun-drenched, cloud dappled magnificence. Ringed on all sides by the tropical forest draped walls of the caldera, Ngorongoro looks like something out of a myth.

One of the best places in the country to see endangered Black Rhinoceros, this park is home to the entirety of the Big Five, and is a particularly good place to see Lions and Cape Buffalo all year.

Phenomenal landscapes, rich wildlife in abundance – Ngorongoro is a special place. 'Africa's Garden of Eden' is a volcanic crater full of Wildlife and a UNESCO World Heritage Site worthy of the name. Animals are present all year round, making this a destination not to miss.

Lions Cheetah, Leopard, Black Rhino, Baboons, Hippo, Elephant, the list is endless. An experience within Ngorongoro will live long in the memory.

Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken caldera in the world and is truly a sight to behold. The crater together with the Olmoti and Empakaai Craters is part of the Eastern Rift Valley, whose volcanism dates back millions of years.


The conservation area is home to some 25,000 animals and the highest population of mammal predators in Africa, including the densest population of Lion, This is truly sensational. Ngorongoro harbours a range of endangered species including the Black Rhino, Wild Hunting Dog and Golden Cat as well as 500 species of bird.


Ngorongoro is more than something special and we look forward to sharing this beautiful, important and historic land with you.


Wonderfully experienced as a Day Trip and beautifully encorperated in to a longer safari including Serengeti, Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks.
