Ngorongoro Conservation Area

The Ngorongoro Crater is one of Africa’s most famous sites and is said to have the highest density of wildlife in Africa. Sometimes described as an ‘eighth wonder of the world’, the Crater has achieved world renown, attracting an ever-increasing number of visitors each year. You are unlikely to escape other vehicles here, but you are guaranteed great wildlife viewing in a genuinely mind-blowing environment. There is nowhere else in Africa quite like Ngorongoro!

The Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera. Forming a spectacular bowl of about 265 square kilometres, with sides up to 600 metres deep; it is home to approximately 30,000 animals at any one time. The Crater rim is over 2,200 metres high and experiences its own climate. From this high vantage point it is possible to make out the tiny shapes of animals making their way around the crater floor far below. Swathes of cloud hang around the rocky rim most days of the year and it’s one of the few places in Tanzania where it can get chilly at night.

Once upon a time, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area was considered as the roof of Africa. 3 million years ago Kilimanjaro was not considered as the “The Roof of Africa” but it was the Ngorongoro Crater which had a massive supervolcano that stood higher and mightier than Kilimanjaro. Tourists can spot almost every animal species present in East Africa in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The carter is home to 25,000 large animals including ungulates, buffalo, warthog, hippo, and elephants.
