The Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro is located some 180km west of Arusha. It is a multiple land use project and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979. Ngorongoro covers 8,200 sq km. In terms of ecosystem.   Ngorongoro is a multiple land use: human being co- exists with the wildlife. The pastoralist community in the area, the Masaai, has co-existed in perfect harmony with the wildlife. Visitors will often see children tending to cattle in an area which is known to have among the largest density of mammalian carnivores!

Ngorongoro is often regarded as the 8th wonder of the world, from eye-catching landscapes, wildlife concentrations to the “cradle of mankind”, Ngorongoro has it all. The Ngorongoro Crater’s intact caldera is home to the very rare Black rhino and the largest concentration of wildlife per square kilometer anywhere in the world. Further north from the crater you have the highlands plus the Olmoti and Empakaai Craters which are perfect locations for walking safaris. Further west from the crater you will find Olduvai Gorge, where the earliest remains of the human beings were found. A little further from Olduvai you will find the Ndutu Plains, home to wildebeest herds who calve in this area around late January and early February. This is also the area where you will find a healthy population of cheetahs and other carnivores who make this place their home when the herds are home !
