About Ngorongoro Crater
Ngorongoro Crater is a giant volcanic caldera which has evolved into a microcosm of safari wildlife containing some 30 000 animals. All of the big five can be seen here as well as almost every other animal you would hope to see on safari. Because of its elevation, the crater rim is over 2000m and the fact that it generates its own climate, Ngorongoro is a great park to visit any time of year.
Entry to the Crater is tightly controlled and it is only open from 06h00 to 16h00 and only 6 hour safari permits are issued. This allows for only a single 6 hour morning game drive or 6 hour afternoon game drive to the park. If you want to go for longer you have to buy two permits.
The crater itself covers over 265sq km but the whole of the Ngorongoro Conservation area is a massive 8000sq km so if you have the time there is so much more to do than visit the crater. Popular places for an extended visit are Olduvai Gorge, where Dr. Louis Leakey discovered the remains of Homo Hablis or “handy man”, regarded as mankind’s first step on the ladder of human evolution, and Lake Eyasi where you can go out on a hunting expedition with the local tribesmen.
