scroll down to explore
As the world’s largest inactive, intact crater, the Ngorongoro Crater and surrounding highlands together form one of Africa’s most beautiful regions and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Volcanic craters form stunning backdrops to some of the most fertile and richest grazing grounds for elephants, zebras, rare black rhinos, and seas of pink flamingos.
Home to the highest density of big game in Africa, travellers have the opportunity to see all the big five and plenty of predators, making Ngorongoro justifiably one of the continent’s most famous safari destinations.
