• Ngorongoro crater

    Not likely a name to forget once you’ve been there! Enjoy the view over the crater and then descend to explore the immense plain. Can you spot one of the rare black rhinos?

A breathtaking natural wonder

A large crater with a surface area of ​​up to 260 square kilometres? Well, of course, we are talking about the Ngorongoro Crater in the north of Tanzania! What is currently a massive crater, was once the highest peak of the continent! Words do this breathtaking natural wonder no justice. After the eruption of the volcano, which completely destroyed itself, it took many years before this place was filled with life.

30.000 Animals

The volcanic ashes made the soil incredibly fertile, so that vegetation slowly started to grow again. This growing vegetation, together with the water that remained, made this area attractive to animals once more. It started with ungulates, large predators, and countless bird species that descended into the crater and remained there. Today, it is home to approximately 30,000 animals and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979.

Northern safari circuit

The Ngorongoro crater is considered one of the highlights of Tanzania. This means that, despite it being a large area, you cannot escape other safari visitors here. Nevertheless, you are assured of an unbelievably beautiful landscape! In addition, there is a good chance that you can spot the Big Five after a morning of driving around, and Ngorongoro is one of the few places where the endangered black rhino still freely walks around. The conservancy area at the crater is part of the ongoing migration of wildebeest, zebras, and other animals in the north. It remains a special place! Combine this crater with the Serengeti, Lake Manyara, Tarangire or Lake Natron and your safari experience is complete!
