Ngorongoro

TANZANIA


LUXURY TRAVEL TO THE NGORONGORO CRATER

The Ngorongoro conservation area is on the southern border of the Serengeti National Park, and is home to the famous Ngorongoro Crater - a volcanic crater located toward the south of this area.

At a size of over 800 000 hectares the Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken or un-flooded caldera in the world. Due to this vast size it holds its own unique ecosystem within the walls of the crater, which is very diverse in its fauna and flora. It is one of the greatest natural wonders of the planet and a UNESCO world heritage site, thanks to the stunning landscape found here combined with the high concentration of wildlife in the area. The crater itself is home to more than 25 000 large animals: lions are the dominant predators, although leopard and a small number of cheetahs can also be found.

Terrain around the edge of the crater and in the areas either side of it are rugged and mountainous, as the Ngorongoro highlands form an escarpment between the grassy savannahs of the Serengeti and the plains of the rift valley, located to the southeast. In the crater area we find a mix of open short grass savannah, savannah woodlands and forests.


ANNUAL GAME MIGRATION

The famous annual game migration passes through the Ngorongoro conservation area between December and February - and this is also the calving season so it can be a great time of year to see it. However, this time of year the crater gets busy and somewhat crowded, there can be a lot of vehicles, and so we often advise that guests stay slightly away from the action, either in remote camps outside the crater or in the Southern Serengeti, between the Serengeti and the crater at this time of year. For guests that do want to dive into the action - there are some great lodges on the rim of the crater itself, such as Ngorongoro Crater Lodge.
