About
Ngorongoro is the best place in Tanzania to see the big five. A healthy population of black rhino and some of the largest tusker elephants left in Africa today are the prize spots, but the Crater is also home to strong populations of lion, leopard, and hyena along with good herds of wildebeest, buffalo, and zebra. Other game in the Ngorongoro includes serval cat, cheetah, jackal, Grant’s and Thompson’s gazelle, flamingo and bat-eared foxes along with approximately 400 species of bird.

    Ngorongoro Crater
    Stop: 8 hours - Admission included
    The Ngorongoro Conservation Area stretches from the Crater Highlands up to the Serengeti and the northern shore of Lake Eyasi. The Ngorongoro Crater was created by the same volcanic movements which also formed the Great Rift Valley, was once as high as Mount Kilimanjaro. Approximately 3 million years ago Ngorongoro erupted, covering the Serengeti with ash, leaving a large crater in the center of the mountain. The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact caldera in the world, with a diameter of about 18 km and an area of 260 km2. The steep crater ridge is more than 600m at its highest point. The crater floor is an earthly paradise and, with about 30,000 animals, one of the most populous wildlife areas in the world. Because the area is enclosed and the flat crater floor is mainly open grassland, it is easy to manage, with the result that it is a stronghold of endangered species, including the black rhino and the cheetah. There are no giraffes, topi or impala in the crater. These animals find the rocky areas too difficult to use and there is insufficient grass for large herds of antelope. The main prey animals are wildebeest, zebra, and buffalo and the main predators are the lions and spotted hyenas. In the open savannah, a hunt can be followed quite easily and is especially interesting as it seems that in Ngorongoro, contrary to what one might expect, the hyenas are the aggressive hunters and the lions are the carrion eaters. Lake Magadi, located in the southwest, is a large shallow soda lake where countless flamingos and other waterfowl live alongside the hippopotamuses. Magnificent as it is, the Ngorongoro Crater is only a small fragment of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and among the areas, other attractions are two lesser-known craters, Olmoti and Empakaai. The added attraction of visiting these craters is that you can either walk or drive to the foot of Olmoti, or the rim of Empakaai. Olmoti rises to 3073m at its western rim, which can be reached by walking through bush and grassy tussocks often bedecked with flowers. An additional highlight of the area is the Munge Falls, which flow through a cleft on the Crater’s southern side. The stream cascades down cliffs, hundreds of meters into a ravine. From the edge of the crater, the road twists downwards towards the Serengeti through rolling grass plains and acacia forests. About 30 kilometers from the crater, there is a narrow road to the Olduvai Gorge. At the site of the gorge, which is approximately 90 meters deep, there was once a lake. Over the years, the lake was covered with thick layers of volcanic ash, which preserved the remains of early humanity. To be so close to where mankind may have begun is an inspiring experience, especially when you see the famous Laetoli footprints, made by early humans some 3.6 million years ago.

Amazing services
Nov 2020 • Family
The guide Mr. Frederick technique and mind are perfect. Consultation and confirmation of e-mail before departure, airport transfer, detailed briefing, network to get information of animals from friends by wireless (of course, Big 5 won), driving skills towards points, abundant expertise, selection of lodging lodge There is no point to mention good points, such as mediation, gentle personality and hospitality, and proactive action that always solves problems, but all of them gave me safety, security, comfort and 100% satisfaction. Was. Thanks for Mr. Fredrick, a wonderful safari experience!

Excellent service
Nov 2020 • Family
Having been on several Serengeti Safaris, I decided to contract with them. They made great recommendations and made the booking process so easy. Then from the moment I was greeted by Mr. Fredrick I knew I had made the right choice. As a solo traveler, I was always
comfortable and knew I was in capable hands. He had such extensive knowledge of the flora and fauna and made it come alive when he shared stories of his lifetime in Tanzania. He made it a point to introduce me to the culture and people of his country--I will never forget the warmth of the Tanzanians. Please don't hesitate booking with this exceptional tour company. You can expect an experience that will remain in your heart forever.
