Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Overview

Ngorongoro Conservation Area is one of the natural wonders of the world with astounding settings and wildlife concentrations. Ngorongoro with its diverse and pristine ecological features combined with the enormity of the area, it can easily be mistaken for a paradise on earth.

Established as a multiple land use area, with wildlife coexisting with semi-nomadic Maasai tribes practising traditional livestock grazing, it homes the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest caldera, at its centre. It is believed that before its eruption it was more elevated than Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak of Africa.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area is situated in the game rich northern circuit adjacent to the Serengeti National Park. With one of the highest wildlife density in Africa, it offers one of the most rewarding game drive opportunities.

Ngorongoro vegetation is varied consisting of lush green, rain-watered vegetation and desert plants. The area is made up of semi-arid plant species, uncultivated lowland flora, highland forests and plentiful short grass that are used for grazing.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area is home to more than 25,000 large animals and 400 bird species. It has a high population of predators, including lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and leopards. The carter is packed with zebras, buffaloes, warthogs, baboons, elephants, flamingos, ostriches and hippos.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area also hosts Olduvai Gorge which is known as the cradle of mankind since the earliest known human specimens were discovered from this place.

Apart from the pristine and mesmerising landscapes and thrilling game view you can also have cultural interactions with Maasai people, who dwell in and out of the area.
