Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Ngorongoro Conservation Area


The Ngorongoro Crater is one of Africa’s most famous sites and is said to have the highest density of wildlife in Africa. Sometimes described as an ‘eighth wonder of the world’, the Crater has achieved world renown, attracting an ever-increasing number of visitors each year. You are unlikely to escape other vehicles here, but you are guaranteed great wildlife viewing in a genuinely mind-blowing environment. There is nowhere else in Africa quite like Ngorongoro! The Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera. Forming a spectacular bowl of about 265 square kilometres, with sides up to 600 metres deep; it is home to approximately 30,000 animals at any one time. The Crater rim is over 2,200 metres high and experiences its own climate. From this high vantage point it is possible to make out the tiny shapes of animals making their way around the crater floor far below. Swathes of cloud hang around the rocky rim most days of the year and it’s one of the few places in Tanzania where it can get chilly at night.

Getting There

Ngorongoro Conservation Area is mostly included in the itinerary of visiting other parks such as Serengeti because the Conservation area is found on the way and is just a three-hour drive on a road connecting from the town of Arusha. The most suitable option to reach Arusha is to fly into the Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA), which is located approximately 46k kilometres or 29 miles from Arusha. It is also possible to catch a flight into Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR), found close to the capital city Dar es Salaam and then fly to Arusha Airport (ARK).

Charter flights to Ngorongoro Conservation Area:

There is a number of domestic flights operating within the region which can be reserved to reach the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Domestic carrier:

  • Precision Air
  • Regional Air
  • Zan Air
  • Safari Air Link
  • Coastal Aviation

Best Time To Visit

You can spot untamed life down on the carter floor all throughout the year. Be that as it may, the review is better in the Dry season (June to October) when the undergrowth has subsided and creatures will, in general, assemble helpfully around waterholes and streams. The main favourable circumstances the wetter months offer are fewer individuals and low-season convenience rates.


The incredible land of Ngorongoro Conservation Area is breathtakingly glorious. It’s simply brimming with the abundant wild species, and the diverse vegetation. And provide the endless safari destinations. You can explore the most inactive volcano, and encompasses various secrets. It is the largest intact, inactive volcanic crater on the planet. Within those 260 square kilometres, there are more than 25,000 large animals.
