The Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater is one of Tanzania’s most famous and most spectacular natural wonders. It is located within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Northern Tanzania’s Crater Highlands, which borders the Serengeti National Park. The crater was formed 2-3 million years ago and is one of the world’s biggest inactive and intact craters in the world. It is also one of the wildlife spots in the country, which makes it even more fascinating. Apart from elephants, buffalos, lions, leopards and hippos, Ngorongoro is home to some of Tanzania’s last remaining wild rhinos, which makes it the perfect place for seeing Africa’s famous Big 5.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area is one of Tanzania’s World Heritage Sites and was established in the year 1959. It attracts more than half a million visitors every year that are keen on enjoying the spectacular views inside and outside of the crater or come to experience the abundant wildlife. The crater has a total size of 8292 km², which is the perfect size for exploring it during one day of Safari.
