Ngorongoro Crater

The world’s largest intact caldera, or collapsed volcanic crater, is today one of Africa’s greatest game viewing destinations. Located in northern Tanzania just east of the Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater is one of the country’s most popular safari spots, and as a result, it is very busy during peak season. The vast crater is part of the greater Ngorongoro Conservation Area, adjoining the Serengeti and part of the great annual migration of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle. The crater itself is a huge dip in the earth’s surface, covered in short grass plains which sustains huge numbers of wildebeest, buffalo, zebra, and Grant’s and Thompson’s gazelle, most of which stay in the caldera all year round, as it is somewhat of a self-sustaining ecosystem.

Lion, leopard, and hyena, as well as smaller predators like jackal, bat-eared fox, and even serval have found comfortable homes in the crater where a water supply ensures they are hydrated, and a literal “bowl” of prey species makes sure they are fed. Most significantly, the Ngorongoro Crater offers visitors’ best chance of seeing the Big Five in Tanzania, due to its presence of black rhino – a prevcious sight indeed. Famously tusked bull elephants amble across the crater floor, and flamingos are a vision of pink when the crater’s lakes, swamps, and springs are full. The walls of the crater are highly vegetated, bringing even more diversity to the flora and fauna of this amazing place.

Accommodation at the Ngorongoro Crater

The Highlands Ngorongoro

The Highlands Ngorongoro

The Highlands redefines the Ngorongoro experience, raising the bar for low-impact/high-style camps. Carefully positioned for maximum privacy high on the slopes of the Olmoti volcano, our guests enjoy sweeping views all the way to the Serengeti. Inspiration for the eight canvas-and-glass domed suites was drawn from the traditional Maasai bomas that dot the landscape.  Warm, intimate and contemporary, this is quite simply the perfect place from which to discover the wild and pristine Crater Highlands.
