Holiday + unique cultural experiences + giving back
= socially responsible & sustainable tourism
There's nothing quite like descending into the Crater floor early morning and there before you on the open plains are hundreds of grazing Zebra, Gazelle, Wilderbeest and oh wait is that a Rhino?
If you loved the book “Animalia”as a child then this is the real thing!
The Crater sits within what is known as the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) and is an extinct collapsed volcano caldera that is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
We won't lie to you – this is not the national park to visit for a solitude experience with the wild as it does get insanely busy with safari trucks in peak season. However, don't let that deter you – if you are enroute to Serengeti you need to pass through the Crater and no trip to the Northern circuit is complete without a visit to the Crater in our opinion – anytime of the year.
Size: 304 sq km (4% of Ngorongoro Conservation Area which is 8292 sq km).
Location: 177 km from Arusha to the park HQ – approx 3.5 hours drive
Weather: Dry season generally runs June to October and wet season November to May. The small rainy season runs December – February. March to April is the highest rainfall generally recorded and the lowest is generally July to September.
Accommodation options: There are numerous lodges and public campsites within the conversation area as well as on the Crater rim which you can choose to stay at.
