Reasons to Visit
  • The Ngorongoro Crater is often called Africa's Eden and the 8th Natural Wonder of the World
  • A visit to the crater is a main drawcard for tourists coming to Tanzania and a definite world-class attraction.
  • Within the crater rim, large herds of zebra and wildebeest graze nearby while sleeping lions laze in the sun.
  • At dawn, the endangered black rhino returns to the thick cover of the crater forests after grazing on dew-laden grass in the morning mist.
  • Ngorongoro Conservation Area includes its eponymous famous crater, Olduvai Gorge, and huge expanses of highland plains, scrub bush, and forests that cover approximately 8300 sq kms.
