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.

Customer Reviews for Ngorongoro Crater

4.6 - Excellent Based on 17 reviews
Julie Kersey Reviewed Tour: Classic Tanzania Safari

“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.”
Awesome Experience with SafariBook Evolution Reviewed Tour: 4 Days Serengeti, Manyara, Ngorongoro Safari Tour

“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.”
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.”

“This is a great, if not basic way to experience the African bush and take in the beautiful starry night skies. However, do be prepared for the fact that there are long days spent in the vehicle with very little opportunity to stretch the legs, an activity holiday this is not!  I would also strongly recommend you take binnoculars, not all the game is conveniently located by the side of the road.”

“This trip offered an amazing wildlife spectacle! It definitely boosted my photography porfolio which was my objective. Listening to lions roar at night was amazing! Seeing Cheetah, Lions and Leapords all before breakfast was something I will never forget.”

“We had a fantastic guide/driver, (Julius), who was a great animal spotter. We saw the big five! However, seven people in one vehicle meant we had to take turns to take photos.”

“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.”
