NGORONGORO CRATER

DESTINATION DETAILS

There can be few people who have not heard, read or seen film or TV footage of this incredible 20-km-wide volcanic crater with its 600-metre walls packed with just about every species of wildlife to be found in East Africa.

The views from the crater rim are incredible, and though the wildlife might not look too impressive from up there, when you get to the bottom you will very quickly change your mind. It’s been compared to Noah’s Ark and the Garden of Eden and it does not come up to Noah’ Ark expectations these days, but you definitely see lions, elephants, rhinos, buffaloes and many of the plains herbivores such as wildebeest, Thomson’s gazelle, zebras and reedbuck, as well as thousands of flamingos wading in the shallows of Lake Magadi- the soda lake on the floor of the crater.

Despite the steep wall of the crater, there’s considerable movement of animals in and out – mostly to Serengeti, since the land between the crater and Lake Manyara is intensively farmed. Yet it remains a favoured spot for the wildlife because there are permanent water and pasture on the crater floor. You can visit Ngorongoro at any time of the year and Shizi Safaris will be delighted to prepare a trip for you.
