    “I just got back from a 5 day camping safari to the Serengeti, Tarangire & Ngorongoro Crater. I have been travelling independently for nearly 20 years and this is only the 2nd tour I have done - and I have to say I was extremely impressed. My driver/guide Shirima was knowledgeable, helpful and great company, not to mention a very careful driver. He took me around each park sharing his extensive expertise on the environment, culture and wildlife, he answered all of my questions and more, and really made the trip very special and person. Also with us was a chef, Hameesi who conjured three great meals a day including a 3 course meal for dinner each night - the food was tasty and high quality, particularly considering he made them all in camp kitchens! Hamees was also great fun and good company. As a solo female traveller, safety and security is always in the back of my mind, but I didn't feel uneasy for a moment. I couldn't recommend Shirima and Hamees more highly, this is a trip I will never forget!”

    Tanzania tented safari Reviewed Tour: Classic Tanzania Safari
    1 - Very poor
    “My overall experience of this trip was 'satisfactory' only because I saw lots of animals. Our Landrover though was ancient, slow and needed stones behind the wheel to hold it when parked. We were in a group of 3 vehicles and the petrol tank fell of off one and meant that 7 people had to be accommodated in the other 2 for 4 hours on very rough roads. The breaks on another were so questionable it had to be replace (with another old vehicle) None of the drivers were in charge and because of this departure times etc were chaotic because different drivers have different instructions and would only travel together. The Exodus rep on arrival was poor, reading out the trip notes and giving no additional information. She was more concerned in us appointing a leader who would collect all tips straight away for the whole trip (thousands of dollars) - we refused. We were in tents five nights not four. One of the tents (2 nights) had seen better days. Packed lunches were left for hours in the sun. We spent hours travelling on roads - exacerbated because of the age of the vehicles which could not travel at speed - we were overtaken constantly.”

    “A brilliant trip from start to finish. I was amazed at how much we saw on the drives. There was nothing that we didn't see. Everything from Lions eating, to a Leopard relaxing up a tree, to Elephants rolling around in mud. Not to mention scores of Zebra, Wildebeest, and Giraffe and even a well hidden Cheetah.”

    5 - Excellent
    “This was not only our first trip with Exodus but our first safari and we were not disappointed. We were well looked after and our leader and drivers were extremely knowledgable which made for a very enjoyable and interesting trip. It was a busy schedule visiting four different areas, Lake Manyara, the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and finally Tarangire Safari Park, each one slightly different. Our group were in two Land Cruisers on Game Drives every day, we could sit and enjoy the scenery and stop to watch an amazing amount of wildlife. It was a privilege to see the wildebeest migrating it was amazing to see them across the plains on the Serengeti as far as the eye could see; a photograph just couldn't capture the image, you had to just spend time looking at the view. I would certainly go on a safari again.”

    Ngorongoro Crater - Overview and Facts

    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 predetermine

    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).

    Accommodation in Ngorongoro Crater

    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.

    Best Time to Visit Ngorongoro Crater

    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.
