One of the most famous Tanzania safari destinations; the Ngorongoro Crater is a World Heritage Site. With 30,000 animals in a 100 square miles game viewing, and particularly Big 5 game viewing, is undeniably the best in the world! At the Ngorongoro Crater you have the opportunity of seeing all Big 5 in one game drive.

The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact caldera in the world. It supports a variety of habitats within the crater walls. Ngorongoro Crater is one of the few places you can see hippo, and supports a strong birdlife. It also has one of the densest Lion populations due to the permanent availability of food within the Ngorongoro Crater. The Ngorongoro Crater rim provides some breathtaking views. With the 600m sheer drop into the Ngorongoro Crater, the African Panorama unfolds in front and below you. Accommodation is found on the crater rim rather than within the crater, making use of this unique setting.

Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is the ultimate luxurious experience sometimes said to be at the end of the world. When the swirling mist sets in, combined with the lodges’ unusual architecture you feel you have stepped into another world. There are a few lodges found nestling on the crater rim, but others are located in the surrounding area. Logistics can be tricky so for the best accommodation and Ngorongoro Crater Safari options it is best to consult an African safari Expert. You can also find out more in our Tips and Information pages.

The local Masai Tribesman is an integrated part of the life here and can be seen grazing their cattle in the wilds of the Ngorongoro Crater. This is a unique part of Crater life. Activities in the area include game drives into the Ngorongoro Crater, cultural interaction with local tribes, excursions to Olduvai Gorge, or relaxing in style at your selected African safari lodge at the Ngorongoro Crater
