Experience Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania

Ngorongoro Conservation Area is the only place in Africa where visitors can experience varied cast of animals gather to graze, live, hunt and die. On one of Ngorongoro’s Crater, you will encounter some of  the 30,000 animals in the crater’s diverse range of habitats: swampy wetlands, open savannah, woodland and lake-all within steep rock walls that climb through thick forest some 600m to the rim.

The Ngorongoro Crater is also one of the eight wonder of the world set in northern Tanzania, sharing part of the Serengeti plains to the north-west and with towns of Arusha, Moshi and Kilimanjaro, to the east, and forms part of the unique Serengeti ecosystem. The conservation area covers about 3185 square miles (8250 sq km), the cratercovers about 100 sq miles (260 sq km). It is also home to over 3000 different species including the endangered black rhino; the crater has a forest and lake which support ecosystem in the park. It has been listed by UNESCO as world heritage and it is also where the world famous archeological site of Oldupai George is allocated. This is an all year round destination as most of the animals remain in the crater year round, ensuring great sightings no matter when you decide to visit the Ngorongoro Crater.
