Ngorongoro Conservation Area is one of Africa’s most important wildlife areas and a bold experiment in multiple land use located in the northern part of Tanzania.
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area spans vast expanses of highland plains, savanna woodlands and forests, from the plains of the Serengeti National Park in the north-west, to the eastern arm of the Great Rift Valley.
At its core is the world famous Ngorongoro Crater a giant caldera in which the dramas of life on the African plains are played out each day by a diverse assemblage of large mammals, wildebeest, zebra, lion and rhino.
Without question Ngorongoro is the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera and home to the highest density of big game in Africa, including all the big five and plenty of predators. Ngorongoro is justifiably one of the continent’s most famous safari destinations. Wildlife
Undoubtedly the best place in Africa to see the Big Five, and photo opportunities are superb. The mineral-rich floor of the crater is covered in nutritious grasses, attracting great herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo and Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelle that can even be seen from the crater rim, swarming across the landscape in great columns.
