Ng,orong'oro National Park

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated 110 mi west of Arusha in the Crater Highlands area of Tanzania. The Ngorongoro Crater, a large volcanic caldera, lies within the area.

The Ngorongoro Crater is often called ‘Africa’s Eden’ and the ’8th Natural Wonder of the World.’ A visit to the crater is a popular attraction for visitors to Tanzania and a definite must-do on your adventure vacation. Within the crater rim, large herds of zebra and wildebeest graze nearby while sleeping lions laze in the sun. At dawn, the endangered black rhino returns to the thick cover of the crater forests after grazing on dew-laden grass in the morning mist. Just outside the crater’s ridge, tall Masaai herd their cattle and goats over green pastures through the highland slopes, living alongside the wildlife as they have for centuries. A protected area, only indigenous tribes such as the Masaai are allowed to live within its borders

The Ngorongoro Crater and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area are without a doubt some of the most beautiful parts of Tanzania, steeped in history and teeming with wildlife. Besides vehicle safaris to Ngorongoro Crater, Olduvai Gorge, and surrounding attractions, hiking treks through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area are becoming increasingly popular options. Either way you choose to visit, the Crater Highlands are an unforgettable part of the Tanzanian experience.
