Ngorongoro NCA


Ngorongoro Crater is a Tanzanian must-see. Situated within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a vast park of spectacular beauty, this caldera or collapsed volcano has created a mini game reserve with many habitats in a very small area. This provides a home to an incredibly diverse range of birds and animals including the Big Five in a concentrated space.
The area is unique in that it is a conservation area which allows human habitation. The local Maasai tribe still live on subsistence farming within the area. This also means that the area is not only a wonderful place to see the animals of Africa but also to get to know its people.


Within the Ngorongoro Crater, there is an incredible abundance of wildlife, including all of The Big Five. Hippo, zebra, crocodile, a wide range of antelope, leopard, cheetah and lion all live here. It’s estimated that about 25,000 big animals live within this natural enclosure. The salt lake in the crater is home to hundreds of beautiful pink flamingo and over 500 species of bird live in the area, making this a birdwatcher’s paradise.
