Ngorongoro Crater holidays

Abundant wildlife and breathtaking views

Created by the collapse of a volcano over two million years ago, the extraordinary volcanic landscape of Ngorongoro is rich and fertile – and home to the densest concentration of wildlife in Africa. From its rim, it drops 600m to the crater floor, where wildlife includes black rhino, hippo and a large lion population.

Opt for the early morning longer game drive at the Ngorongoro Crater. Your hotel can provide a picnic breakfast on request, and it will give you the best game viewing while the animals are active.

Although it seems obvious, take a pair of binoculars or a good camera. Cheetah and leopard can be especially hard to spot. Many people rely on their phone to take pictures and the quality just isn’t good enough. If you have time, ask your guide to take a detour in the Serengeti to the Ndutu region – one of the only places you can off-road in Tanzania. To top off our experience here we saw the migration and drove alongside the wildebeest and zebra making their journey.
