The Ngorongoro Conservation Area offers the easiest Big Five animal viewing in Africa. It is an ancient volcanic crater close to the Serengeti that is home to the greatest concentrations of enormous animals in all of Africa. The Ngorongoro Crater is also the home to cheetah, hyena, and hippo, in addition to the Big Five animals (lion, elephant, wild buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros). The Ngorongoro Crater is where man and nature come together in a solitary vista, and there are also herds of cattle being cared for by attentive red-robed Maasai herders. Safari tourists travel here to get the whole Tanzania Safari Tours experience.

The magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, the largest crater in the world, is located in the centre of Ngorongoro. It is believed that Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s most famous peak, was higher before its emission. It is also a location designed for vistas. On the rim of the crater itself, a few Ngorongoro lodgings are strategically placed to provide the most frightening views. Others are located outside of the crater on lavish coffee estates or broad savannah grasslands. A well-known destination is the Ngorongoro Crater, especially given how well it may be connected to the Serengeti, Lake Manyara, and even Kenya’s Masai Mara Reserve. Couples on their honeymoon will appreciate the unadulterated views from their crater-side suite; families will find resorts that value children and provide family safari activities and child minders.

Although game viewing on the crater floor is Ngorogoro’s main lure, visitors will find a wide range of other activities on their Tanzania Safari excursions, including bird watching, cultural excursions, mountain biking, and strolling safaris. Some lodgings feature an on-site health specialist/masseuse, and lodges frequently serve dinners outside under starry skies. Do you want to visit Tanzania’s wildest destinations?

Because of its size and good ecology, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area feels like a profoundly thought-out Tanzania safari experience.


There are vast expanses of highland grasslands, savannah, savanna forests, and woods within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The area was created in 1959 as a multi-use area, where natural life coexisted with semi-nomadic Maasai pastoralists engaging in traditional cattle grazing. It includes the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, the largest crater in the entire globe.

NGORONGORO CONSERVATION AREA HEALTH & SAFETY As with typical reserves, Ngorongoro Crater travel is regarded as secure. You will typically interact with people who are there to help you, such as tour company employees, hotel personnel, and park specialists, in addition to specific guests.
Mosquito repellent and malaria vaccinations are advised since malaria prevention measures are essential because it is a health problem. Similarly, cover any exposed skin at night. Get professional guidance on the recommended health and safety immunisations before to your trip.
NGORONGORO CONSERVATION AREA FOOD Buffet-style meals are served for breakfast and lunch, and there are many international options available. In true safari fashion, you would be served a full English breakfast along with European selections, and the lunch menus would provide options for vegetarians as well as meat, chicken, and fish eaters. Additionally, there is a salad buffet, soup, an entrée, a dessert, cheese and biscuits, and tea or coffee on the evening menus. There are always vegetarian options available. Fruits and vegetables, as well as the majority of the meat and dairy products, are derived from regional farms.
To begin any conversation, smile and say “Jambo!” in a cheerful manner. In many cases, learning a few Swahili words in Tanzanian language will help break the ice. The best time to visit Tanzania is in the summer (June to September), when temperatures are at their coolest and many hotels and lodges are highly crowded, especially in July and August.
