The perfect safari holiday in Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most impressive geological features in Africa. A near perfect crater from a long extinct volcano plays host to an incredible variety of wildlife

The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most spectacular natural wonders in Africa and it’s UNESCO World Heritage Status is well deserved. Situated in the north of Tanzania adjacent to the Serengeti it offers the most breath-taking views across the vast crater as well as some of the best wildlife viewing in Tanzania, including the ‘Big 5’, with the elusive Black Rhino making an appearance if you are lucky.

The wildlife on the crater floor is as impressive as the views from the crater rim itself, with an unparalleled concentration of animals living in the crater including the highest concentration of predators, including lions, in Africa. This unbroken caldera spans of 19kms and is made up of grasslands, swamps and acacia woodland, with steep walls than soar upwards some 500m to the rim, making a natural barrier to the animals.

The crater floor is not the only attraction, as other impressive sights include Olduvai Gorge (the cradle of mankind) and the Crater Highlands which are a collection of extinct volcanoes and calderas (collapsed volcanoes) bordered by the dramatic Rift Valley escarpment to the east. There are very interesting hikes in this area and cultural experiences with the Maasai who live in this area.
