Ngorongoro Crater

About Ngorongoro Crater

The breathtaking Ngorongoro Crater is undoubtedly the centerpiece of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. This crater formed about two to three million years ago when a volcano exploded and collapsed on itself.

The Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was voted as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa by the Seven Natural Wonders organization in 2013.

Wildlife rating: 5 out of 5

Scenery Rating: 5 out of 5

Bush Vibe: 3 out of 5

A home to one of the densest mammal populations in the world, the Ngorongoro Crater is one of the best places to see the Big Five (African lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard, and Rhinoceros). Other animals like gazelle, wildebeests, zebras, cheetahs, golden jackals, and topi are also found here in large numbers. For a relatively compact area of 260 square kilometers, it has an astonishing number of over 500 bird species.

The safaris here are amazing because you can see animals in every direction of your vehicle. Spotting the big five in one single day is highly likely. You can even get out of your vehicle in a few predetermined picnic spots during the game drive. You can enjoy the view in these places without being screened by the windows of the safari vehicle.

Pros and Cons of the Ngorongoro Crater

Pros:

  • Year round opportunities of enjoying the view of the majestic wildlife.
  • Big Five and hundreds of other species of birds and animals are found within the crater.

Con:

  • Can get crowded in the peak season (July- October).

Ngorongoro Crater - Accommodation

The closest you can stay to the Ngorongoro crater is along the Crater rim overlooking the floor. There is no accommodation within the crater itself.

Another option is the Rift Valley Escarpment in Karatu, which is about 20 kms away from the Ngorongoro Crater. The lodges and camps in Karatu are more affordable than the ones along the Crater rim.

Ngorongoro Crater - Best Season to Visit

The animals in the Ngorongoro Crater will be within the crater throughout the year, so you can see them regardless of when you visit.

The weather is good during peak season (July - October) with little to no rainfall. However, large number of tourists visit during this period and it can get crowded at times.

To avoid the crowd and get a more quiet experience, you can visit Ngorongoro Crater during low season (January - April). However, heavy rainfall may dampen your plans to some extent.

“We just returned from an amazing two week safari and beach holiday organised by Arend Safaris. We are a family of five - two adult children, and a five year old. We have been thoroughly impressed with Arend safaris throughout the entire planning and execution of our trip. We planned our trip with Thomas over the course of a few months and were grateful for Thomas's helpful and prompt replies to our numerous emails! Thomas was very knowledgeable about Tanzania and what we could expect, and was flexible in terms of tailoring the trip and accommodation to suit our needs. The safari portion of our trip was the highlight. After a brief delay in Rwanda, we landed in Kilimanjaro and were picked up by our amazing guide, Baraka. We stayed one night at the African Tulip - very nice, and set off the next morning for the Ngongorongo Crater. From the moment we entered the conservation area we saw so many animals - far more than we would have expected on our first day - and all thanks to Baraka! He can spot animals miles away. We had close encounters with a lion, and saw zebra, elephants, giraffes, buffalo and two black rhinos! We spent a night at the Ngongorongoro Farmhouse - again, really great accommodation. The rooms are huge and the grounds are spacious. We headed to the Serengeti the following day. We had an amazing three days on safari - and saw soooo many animals. We got nice and close to lions and elephants, and even saw two leopards in one day! During our time in the Serengeti we stayed at the Serengeti Kati Kati Camp. This accommodation was exceptional - the tents are all set a little way apart, and you really feel like you're in the middle of it all - which you are. The staff at the Camp are really great, they are all super friendly and make a big effort to ensure you are happy and are having fun. They light a campfire which everyone sits around each night before dinner, before serving dinner in the main tent. Your guide eats dinner with you, which we really enjoyed too. Our guide, Baraka, was great. He was extremely knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. We felt that he fitted in with us perfectly. He was flexible and relaxed and made the whole safari a breeze. We felt very lucky to have him as a guide. Following our safari we flew direct from the Serengeti to Zanzibar with Auric Air - it was a great flight, with lots to see out the window. We finished our trip with 6 days in Zanzibar. We stayed at the Flame Tree Cottages in Nungwi, a beautiful part of the island. We visited Stonetown and Prison Island - and meet some very old tortoises. The accommodation and the beaches were great. Overall, an amazing trip made simple and stress free by booking with Arend Safaris. We are very happy and would thoroughly recommend The Arend safaris to any travellers.”

“The Arend Safari was very helpful/thorough in helping to plan to trip. They also helped us arrange discounts at the resorts (we saved money versus booking directly). Their tour guide was excellent. Overall, we had a great time in Tanzania, and Arend Safaris did an excellent job in helping us to plan the trip, and we enjoyed their tour guide. We would highly recommend others to use their travel planning services. Thank you”

“We just got back from a 7 day visit to Tanzania through Arend Safaris and there is not a single they I would do differently. Tom and the rest of the Access team took care of everything from soup to nuts and had all the patience to answer even the silliest of questions. Every detail was handled to perfection and their team of guides were also first class and knowledgeable. Here's the bottom line: There are many companies from which to choose from to plan your safari and my sense is that they all do a very good job. I chose arend because they are a small outfit that offer that personal touch. After speaking with a few companies I knew that Arend was for me the minute I got off my first call with Karen. I couldn't be happier about our Safari experience and would recommend call them before making your final decision!”

Well organized by Arend Safaris, particularly Thomas, who made sure that we get the very best out there. We enjoyed and we recommend it for whoever wants a perfect luxury trip to Africa.”

“I planned a safari to Tanzania for a long time and I thought it was great idea to use a small company since they don't have a lot of people to take to a safari hence I chose Arend Safari for my adventure. They really helped me get the best out my safari despite some little hitches that I can say were due to some unavoidable circumstances such as late arrivals of my flight due to the original flight cancellation. They had to rearrange my schedule s that I wont miss anything out there and Tom, managing director made sure everything went well with my safari. I enjoyed and I would recommended them to anybody visting Tanzania for a safari.”

“I wish I had a lot of time to write this review but I'll write something as precise as possible regarding my safari in tanzania. I arrived late on 26th, Feb 2016 for a safari, and the guide from Arend Safari was already there to pick me up. I was all alone since I was on a business trip in Ethiopia a day earlier and now I decided to take a break. Tanzania was on top of the list when it comes safari in Africa, especially places like Serengeti and Ngorongoro, I have hearing a lot from other travelers. For sure everything about this safari lived up to my expectation and I thank my cousin Jane who recommended Arend Safaris, it was a good choice. I also would take this forum to give them 5 stars for good safari.”

“Everything went well with me and my family. We were here few weeks ago on our Vacation and we decided to go on safari. We had a lot choices but we eventually fell over this safari since we were on holiday and we planned it for quite sometime. It turned out to be a fine safari with lots of good memories and we enjoyed every part of it. Our biggest surprise was how beautiful the lodges were. I think these guys are good at choosing where to take you. We loved it”
