Ngorongoro National Park Overview
The ancient Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the most interesting parks of Tanzania. A safari tour of the Ngorongoro National Park is your chance to see the greatest number of wildlife species per square kilometer. The Crater – set amidst the tropical forests of the Great Rift Valley highlands – is the crown jewel of Tanzania’s National Parks. The tour, beginning at the Crater rim with its breathtaking views of the Crater floor and carrying on to the game drive in the Crater itself with its plains, acacia woodlands and lakes teeming with bird- and wildlife, shall leave you with a sense of wonder to be cherished for the rest of your life
Wildlife of Ngorongoro Crater
Ngorongoro Crater offers the highest density of animal species to be found in all of Tanzania’s National Parks. Making an early start on your safari will give you the chance to spot the reclusive Leopard in the woods of the highlands amidst which the Crater is set. The cautious Caracal and Serval add to the list of cats to be spotted here. Herds of Elephants, whose sheer size belies the grace of their silent passage and the Cape Buffalo grazing peacefully can not but leave one with a lasting sense of awe. Zebra and Wildebeest frolicking on the plains of the Crater floor under the ever watchful eyes of a pride of Lions, Hippo and Flamingoes of the Crater Lakes and, to top it all, the seldom met Rhino – all share this magic microcosm.
