Ngorongoro Crater & Ndutu Conservation Area

Ngorongoro Crater Safari in Tanzania

Our tailor-made Ngorongoro Crater safari in Tanzania will take you on a journey to a spectacular “wildlife-filled bowl”.

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area was founded on a vision to promote conservation, protect the interests of local communities and encourage tourism by combining nature conservation and human development in a unique way. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the Ngorongoro Crater are UNESCO World Heritage Sites and home to approximately 30,000 large mammals and a huge variety of smaller species. The wondrous Ngorongoro Crater was formed when a giant volcano erupted three million years ago.

The crater is 2,000 ft deep and its floor covers 260 sq km. Together, it forms a natural enclosure for wildlife and breathtaking landscapes. The crater rim provides varied habitats including grassland, swamps, montane forests and in the center you will find salt lake called Lake Makat (Maasai for “salt”). The beauty of this area attracts species of all kinds, which you can simply gaze at in wonder.

Is a safari in Ngorongoro Crater Tanzania worth it?

Yes, a safari in Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater is a must do! Why?

Firstly, the Ngorongoro Crater is the largest un-flooded and unbroken caldera in the world. At approximately 20 km across and 600 m deep, this cavernous volcanic crater is a breathtaking natural wonder that will leave you speechless.

Standing on the rocky rim and looking down at the crater floor, you have the highest density of wildlife in Africa at your feet. Most notably, a safari in Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater gives you one of the best possible chances of seeing the endangered Black Rhino as this protected idyll is one of the few places where they continue to breed and thrive.

Additionally, you may also be lucky enough to see leopards, majestic black-maned lions, and flocks of flamingos.
