Ngorongoro Crater Budget Travel Guide


Visit Ngorongoro Crater by Departing From…


The "Garden of Eden"

The Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania is often referred to as the "Garden of Eden" and with good reason as the Ngorongoro has over 25 000 larger animals making it highest density of animals in one area in Africa.

How the Ngorongoro Crater formed

The Ngorongoro is an extinct volcano that collapsed in on itself approximately 25 million years ago forming a large superbowl. The Crater is the largest unbroken, unflooded volcanic Caldera in the world. The Ngorongoro Crater is 610 m deep and occupies an area of 260 sq km's.

The view and Game

The views from the top of the crater wall are absolutely breathtaking. As one descends by 4x4 vehicle into the crater one passes through Fever Tree forests that shelter monkeys, bushbuck, waterbuck and a few black rhino.  You then head onto the Ngorongoro plain with an abundance of animal life like you will never have seen before. Amongst the animals you will encounter are wildebeest, buffalo, gazelle, zebra, black-maned lion, leopard, hyena, hippo and elephant to name a few. In the Ngorongoro crater centre you will also come across a soda lake that has an abundance or bird life including flamingos. It is one of the top areas for predators to take down there pray.

A trip to the Ngorongoro Crater is a sheer visual delight and a must for any Safari in Tanzania.
