Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro Crater

The spectacular landscape of the world renowned Ngorongoro Crater has to be seen to be believed. It forms part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) within the Serengeti ecosystem and the Crater itself is home to more than 25 000 large mammals. Once a large volcano that later collapsed, it is now the largest intact caldera in the world.

The Crater floor has abundant water, which provides excellent grazing for resident herbivores, while the Crater walls are covered in lush vegetation, forming excellent protection for the large numbers of game.

This is an area of spectacular beauty and superb game viewing, a truly unique safari destination.

  • The Lerai Forest is one of the best places in Africa for leopard sightings
