Ngorongoro Crater Safari

The ultimate guide to your next Ngorongoro Crater Safari

Get to Know Ngorongoro Crater

This is where vast herds of the Great Migration come to give birth in a 3-million-year-old collapsed volcano, Masai people live and fossils abound 

Ngorongoro Crater – a Unesco World Heritage site – is 600 meters deep, 20 kilometres wide and the largest unflooded, unbroken caldera in the world. It's an extraordinary ecosystem where you can find the Big Five or even, if you're lucky, the endangered black rhino on the Crater floor.When it was still active, the volcano deposited its volcanic ash on what's now the Serengeti plains towards the west, preserving many fossils in Olduvai (Oldupai) Gorge, discovered by Louis and Mary Leakey. The greater Ngorongoro Conservation Area conserves the fragile Ngorongoro Crater ecosystem and serves as an important space for the animals of the Great Migration to give birth at Lake Ndutu, which borders the southern Serengeti.
