Ngorongoro

TANZANIA


LUXURY TRAVEL TO THE NGORONGORO CONSERVATION AREA

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. In our opinion, this area should be thought of in two ways: firstly, the Ngorongoro crater itself, and secondly the surrounding Ngorongoro highlands and Ma'asai culture.


THE NGORONGORO CRATER

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 on the crater floor, although leopard and a small number of cheetahs can also be found.


THE SURROUNDING NGORONGORO HIGHLANDS

The famed crater is juts one part of the story in this area. 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. Terrain rises to significant altitudes, crafting large-scale landscapes that are impressive and very scenic all around, and the area is worth visiting for this alone. Hills are dotted with authentic Ma'asai settlements that in our view are some of the most natural to be found anywhere, offering an excellent glimpse of life entirely removed from that which we all know today. There are also some excellent hikes around that get you out and about to experience the areas and scenery first-hand, and we recommend doing them where you can.


ANNUAL GAME MIGRATION IN NGORONGORO

The famous annual game migration passes through the Ngorongoro conservation area between December and Februaryand this is also the calving season, so it can be a great time of year to see the migration. At this time of year the crater has a reputation for getting busy and somewhat crowded, although we feel that this reputation is overdone and that with careful accommodation selection it will not be an issue at all. For guests that do want to dive into the action there are some great lodges on the rim of the crater itself that all have their own unique benefits. For luxury and an prime positioning, take a look at Ngorongoro Crater Lodge.
