The Ngorongoro Crater has a key role to play in the origin story of humanity. It is believed that early humans lived in this region for more than 3 million years ago. Today, the Ngorongoro is rigorously protected by the Tanzanian government and is a magnet for adventurers and wildlife lovers from all over the world.

Best Attractions in Ngorongoro Conservation Area
There is so much to explore in Ngorongoro Crater. Some of these activities include:

Visit the Ngorongoro Crater – and be astonished by the beauty of the world’s largest intact and inactive volcanic caldera. Home to a host of different wildlife, the Ngorongoro crater is named by many as the “8th wonder of the world”.

Explore Olduvai Gorge – and discover the one of the most important paleoanthropological sites in the world. Hundreds of fossilised bones and stone tools have been found in the area, leading Paleoanthropologists to conclude that human’s evolved in Africa.

Enjoy Lake Natron – Sitting just below Ol Doinyo Lengai, Lake Natron is a mineral rich soda lake and home to thousands of Flamingos.

Ngorongoro Crater is home to a unique collection of wildlife including African buffalo, black rhinoceros, lions, wildebeest, hippos, zebras, hyenas, blue monkeys and more.

Tanzania’s Plains to Pristine Beaches Safari – This incredible 11-day safari tour is completely contained within Tanzania and extends from evocative Zanzibar Island on the Indian Ocean to Ngorongoro Crater and beyond to the Serengeti National Park. Prepare to be dazzled!

Craters and Lakes of Tanzania Safari – Without a doubt, one of our most compelling safaris, the Craters and Lakes of Tanzania Safari Tour explores Lake Manyara National Park and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. You’ll see the world the way it was a million years ago.

Plains of Tanzania Safari – This safari begins at Kilimanjaro Airport and takes you into the heart of the Rift Valley. Over 4 unforgettable days, you will share ancient landscapes with some of the world’s heaviest concentrations of wild elephants as well as the tree-climbing lions of Lake Manyara National Park.
