The Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtakingly beautiful setting and the best place in Tanzania to see the Big Five. However, as one of the world’s most astonishing and renowned natural wonders. Ngorongoro Crater does get busy, and at times very busy. Due to the crowds we recommend a two-night stay only here. Also moving on to the Serengeti for a quieter, more private safari experience.
Any trip to Northern Tanzania has to include the Ngorongoro Crater. This is one of the most beautiful natural wildlife safari sites in the world. Moreover an exceptional place to interact with people from the Masaai tribe.
The Ngorongoro Crater and surrounding highlands together form one of Africa’s most beautiful regions. Volcanic craters is most fertile and richest grazing grounds in Africa. But, the most famous such crater is without question the Ngorongoro Crater. This is world’s largest intact volcanic caldera and home to the highest density of big game in Africa. This ncluding all the big five and plenty of predators. Ngorongoro is justifiably one of the continent’s most famous safari destinations.
The choice is whether to stay at a hotel on the Crater rim for the phenomenal view. Or a little way away from the Crater in nearby Karatu. The advantages of Karatu include the comparative lack of crowds and better-value. Also, smaller and more intimate lodges which offer a range of activities such as walking and mountain biking.
