Ngorongoro Crater

Formed 2.5 million years ago after an ancient volcano erupted and then collapsed, the Ngorongoo crater is one of Tanzania’s most unique safari destinations. Thousands of birds and animals live here among the grasslands and Lake Magadi.

Why the Ngorongoro Crater?
Entering Ngorongoro Crater is an experience all its own. You’ll drive up steep, winding roads and then descend over the rim of the crater. The views are wonderful and it only gets better as you make your way to the crater floor. Elephants, warthogs, antelope, lion and even cheetah, leopard and black rhino can be spotted.

Listening to grunting hippos wallow in the shallows of Lake Magadi, unbothered by surrounding flamingos. You might even catch the lake looking as pink as the birds when its surface is rich with nutritious algae. Come for a stay or stay a while in the area – Ngorongoro Crater is excellent for vehicle safaris, but it’s also possible to hike and explore neighbouring volcanoes.
  • Said to be the world’s largest unbroken caldera.
  • Phenomenal viewpoints around the rim of the crater.
  • Surprising amount of wildlife in a small area.
  • Rare animals including leopard and rhino.
  • Located between the Serengeti and the Great Rift Valley.
