Ngorongoro Crater

Explore one of Tanzania’s top game parks on the well-loved Northern Safari Circuit in just a few days! Starting and ending in Arusha, Tanzania, this affordable 3-day road Safari journeys to the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater, hosting Africa’s Big Five and an abundance of other wildlife.

The tour is ideal for travelers with a limited time and budget in East Africa! The tour begins with collection in Arusha city, Tanzania’s safari capital located at the foot of Mount Meru. We travel to Ngorongoro Crater located 75 miles (120 km) west of the town of Arusha.

The afternoon is at leisure. You can choose to enjoy one of the many activities available. We spend the night at one of the lodges/ camps on the rim of the crater or close to the entrance gate of the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area.

Ngorongoro Crater accommodation options include Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge, andBeyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, Gibb’s Farm or Sanctuary Ngorongoro Crater Camp.

The Ngorongoro Crater is part of the Serengeti ecosystem, a massive caldera spanning an impressive 18 km in diameter with walls as high as 600m. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to the densest mammalian population in Africa, at around 25,000 large animals.

The Crater is an extinct volcanic caldera in the Eastern Great Rift Valley, northern Tanzania from Arusha and is home to populations of Lion, Leopard, and Hyena along with good herds of Wildebeest, Buffalo, and Zebra.

Other game in the Ngorongoro includes Serval Cat, Cheetah, Jackal, Grant’s and Thompson’s Gazelle, Flamingo, and bat-eared foxes along with approximately 400 species of bird. Animals are free to leave or enter the crater but most of them stay because of the plentiful water and food available on the crater floor throughout the year.

On day 2, we descend the steep crater walls to explore this diverse wilderness area teeming with Africa’s wildlife. The Ngorongoro Crater hosts the Big Five of Africa, boasting one of the highest concentration of lions in the world.

Almost all of the wild animal species found on the savannahs of East Africa inhabit this compact crater.  We stop for a picnic lunch in the crater and after our thrilling wildlife experience we head back to our accommodations.

On the 3rd day of our safari, we depart Ngorongoro and drive back to bustling Arusha. Along the way, you may stop at Karatu or Mto Wa Mbu for a cultural village tour. In the early afternoon we arrive in Arusha, where our fantastic 3-day Ngorongoro Crater Safari to the Northern Safari Circuit ends.
