3 million years ago the Ngorongoro Crater was a volcanic mountain taller than Kilimanjaro. It exploded and collapsed, becoming the world’s largest complete crater. With crater walls going down to a depth of 610 meters and the base area covering 260 square kilometers, it is a perfect place to see everything – lions, leopards, hippopotamus, buffalo, elephant, warthogs, and migrating wildebeest.

Wildlife & Crater Highlights

With 25,000 animal species, there is more than enough to be seen in the Ngorongoro Crater area.

Gnu, zebra, buffalo, warthogs, hyenas, hippos, baboons, dik dik, reedbucks, and buskbucks live in the crater. Wildebeest, lions, and leopards are also present.

Vibrant birdlife passes through the crater, many en route to other locations. Flamingos, white storks, and swallows are popular from November to May. Verreaux’s Eagle, buzzards, and other predatory and scavenger birds are some of the larger birdlife in Ngorongoro crater.

The black rhinoceros can only be found in Ngorongoro Crater. Arrive early during sunrise hours to catch the elusive black rhinoceros amongst the yellow acacia tree forest.

Walking Safaris through Empakai Crater
A unique ‘O’ shaped crater contains a circular lake formed by volcanic activity. The only way to enter is through a walking safari where you will see an untouched habitat. On foot you will walk among wildlife from buffalo, leopards, antelope, and flamingo.

Explore Olmoti Crater
The crater was created through water erosion, and at one end a beautiful cascading waterfall is indicative of its origins. Journey on foot through a natural microcosm.

Should I bring insect or mosquito repellent?
It is strongly recommended that you bring your preference of insect or mosquito repellent. Especially in the early morning and evenings, mosquitoes can be present. Some flies and ticks can also be a nuisance depending on the geographical location.
Should I bring sunscreen or sunblock?
It is highly recommended that you bring your preferred form of sun protection while on safari. This can include SPF30 or higher sunblock, hats, sunglasses, and thin long-sleeve shirts and pants. Because Tanzania is close to the equator, UV rays are strong.
Are there places to charge electronics while on safari?
In safari vehicles We currently have electronic charging options in our 4×4 safari vehicles. Keep in mind you will need adapters for Tanzania plugs (3 square prongs) at 220-240V. At lodges or campsites Depending on a lodging or camping safari, the answer can differ. In selected lodges and luxury hotels and camps, options for charging electronics will be available. However, be aware that electricity is subject to frequent outage. In a camping safari, you will not have the option for charging electronics at camp sites.
Are the lodges and campsites safe at night?
Safaris operators are highly selective for quality, service, and safety of all accommodations for our travelers. Our negotiated accommodations must meet the highest standard for safety, and we do not tolerate petty theft or any history of compromised safety to our travelers. Campsites within national parks are regulated by the Tanzania National Parks Authority. They are not fenced areas, which means that animals may occasionally come close to the campsites. Practice regular precautions, such as use of flashlights, avoid provoking or luring animals close to the camp, and avoid storing any food inside tents. Your safari guide will be with you at campsites, and will provide additional safety details during your briefings
