If you're looking for an unforgettable Tanzania safari experience, look no further than the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in East Africa's Great Rift Valley! A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ngorongoro Conservation Area is home to the world's largest unbroken caldera that offers visitors magnificent vistas from the Ngorongoro Crater rim, exceptional wildlife and birdlife safaris, cultural and coffee plantations excursions.
The Ngorongoro Crater and Conservation Area as a safari destination are perfectly paired with safari lodges and tented camps in the Serengeti, Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Parks. The combination of all these National Parks is known as Tanzania's "Northern safari route" due to the short driving and flying distance involved between destinations.
The floor of the Ngorongoro crater is where all the game drives and nature walks take place, with wildlife sightings that include; lion, leopard, gnu, zebra, buffalo, eland and kongoni, warthogs, black rhinos and those giant-tusked elephants. For birders, birdlife is up there with the best in Africa. Should one have some free time on hand or an extra day to spare, we would highly recommend touring the surrounding coffee plantations. Should one feel energetic, forest walks in the Ngorongoro Crater and Conservation Area are extremely rewarding.
