    “If we could give this safari tour company more than five stars, we would. They helped us in creating a truly EPIC African Safari & KILIMANJARO TREKKING!! Everything exceeded our expectations. We told them our interests and priorities for the trip and our agents worked hard to make sure it was all we wanted and more. Even after a few changes with travel dates.
    Our safari tour designer provided absolutely professional and first-class service. Every booking and guide, porters, driver and staff person we met were exemplary, and the suggestions they made for us were fantastic. As first-time travelers to Africa, with group of 10 students we had many questions, and our agent responded promptly and in detail to all our questions. Brian, the company’s managing director and his partner met with us in person not once but twice - that level of service is something we have not encountered before. Our Kili guide and Safari driver was one of the most knowledgeable and friendly tour staffs we have ever met - we were sad to leave them. We cannot recommend this safari tour company highly enough! Our expectations were high, and they were exceeded!”

Everything was organised perfectly. Accommodation was superb and the game drives were exceptional. A special mention to our guide for being amazing.

    “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!”

    “I just finished my 4 days Tanzania Safari. I joined a group of 5 people, strangers but came to find out we all come from the same country which was a welcomed coincidence. We had a great time with our guide James and stomach doctor Buri. Steve with communication was perfect, quick and professional. I had read a scary review but he assured me that their service is perfect and they have their own office and vehicles. I took a risk and it was worth it. We met at their office in Arusha Centre Tourist Inn before the safari for payments, then proceed the safari which was more than I ever imagined or expected. The entire 4 days to Manyara Serengeti Ngorongoro crater was handled professionally and I have high standards.
    I really liked Safari Book Evolution. We managed to see all wild animals and the service was great. It was an excellent option in terms of value for money. James, Buri and Steve I will never forget you, thank you all for the experience.”

    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.
