Ngorongoro crater safari

The Ngorongoro Crater, This is the world’s largest Intact and stand-alone caldera, which was formulated by a major eruption of a volcano 2 to 3 million years ago. This eruption left the caldera 600 meters higher and a diameter of 16 km, that flooded with fertile volcanic soil and year-round water supply. This ecosystem makes Ngorongoro the paradise of a huge array of animals from  Big 5 to small ones.

It is only at  Ngorongoro Crater where you will spot all Big 5 animals ( Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino, and Buffalo) at the same dramatic natural Zoo. 

If you want to glimpse the only remaining  Huge Tusked elephants, a large population of Black African Rhinos and the pride of Fantastic Cats, Then Ngorongoro is the perfect place to be.

About Ngorongoro Crater Safari .

 The Park is Populated with healthy black rhinos, African Elephant, lion, leopard, and hyena. Apart from Leopards who are a bit tricky to spot as they are living in the highly dense forest of Lerai, the rest of the big 5 can be sighted easily.

Whenever you visit Ngorongoro you are guaranteed to see huge herds of wildebeest, Zebra, and Buffalo. The Crater  is stocked  with  other wildlife animals like , cheetah, jackal, Grant's, Thompson's gazelle, flamingos ,bat-eared foxes etc .

For Aves lovers  this is the  home of approximately 400 species of bird. 

In Nutshell , The caldera of Ngorongoro Crater makes the park to have its own ecosystem. As animals are naturally “stocked in a zoo”  this makes migration of animals impossible , thus  makes  game viewing at Ngorongoro crater to be reliable  throughout the year. 

When is the Best time to go?

As the wildlife “stocked” in the crater all the time, Ngorongoro Safari can be performed at any time of the year. 

For the best experience, we suggest you take Safari during the low  Season, whereby the traffic on the Crater  Floor is low and  Lake Magadi in the center  Of the crater will have  a higher concentration of Flamingos.  

Where is Ngorongoro Located?

Empakaai Crater. 

 A small  Caldera a 90 minutes driving from Ngorongoro Crater.The Empakaai is just 300 meters tall and is less than 10  kilometers in diameter.

For those with plenty of time on a Ngorongoro Trip, it is a good idea to hike this dramatic Crater.

Olduvai Gorge.

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area does not only generate interest purely based on wildlife, the area has also got the most extensive history. In early 1960 Dr David Leackey and his wife Mary discovered various Hominid species that have lived there for millions of years. The discovered fossils were dated to 3.6 million years ago. 

Olduvai gorge is one of the most important prehistoric sites in the world and has been instrumental in understanding human evolution. This site has been properly kept with some of the hominid fossils still  unearthed.
