Ngorongoro Crater Day Trip


Our driver will meet you at your Arusha or Moshi hotel for a early morning departure, then enjoy views of the Tanzania countryside on a drive to Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Upon arrival to the crater, we begin the first game drive of the day, with an expert safari guide to help you spot some of the animals that thrive within the crater walls. The Ngorongoro Crater has Africa’s highest density of mammal predators and the world’s highest-known density of lions, so it’s an ideal destination for spotting some of Tanzania’s most thrilling game.

Watch for Ngorongoro’s rare inhabitants as well—endangered black rhinos, golden cats, and wild hunting dogs can be found in the arid savanna—and if you’re visiting Ngorongoro during the flamingo migration, you may see the bottom of the crater tinted bright pink by thousands of lesser flamingos.

Pause for a picnic lunch inside the park, then keep exploring into the afternoon, as the wildlife and landscape changes throughout the day. At roughly 3pm begin the 3-hour trip back to Arusha City, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

About Ngorongoro Crater

Pick a superlative: amazing, incredible, breathtaking…they all apply to the stunning ethereal blue-green vistas of the Ngorongoro Crater. But as wonderful as the views are from above, the real magic happens when you get down inside and drive among an unparalleled concentration of wildlife, including the highest density of both lions and overall predators in Africa. This is one of Africa’s premier attractions and this world-renowned natural wonder is deservedly a Unesco World Heritage Site.

The property has global importance for biodiversity conservation due to the presence of globally threatened species, the density of wildlife inhabiting the area, and the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra, gazelles and other animals into the northern plains. Extensive archaeological research has also yielded a long sequence of evidence of human evolution and human-environment dynamics, including early hominid footprints dating back 3.6 million years.
