Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area boasts the finest blend of landscape, wildlife, people, and archaeological sites in Africa.  The rich pasture and permanent water of the crater floor support a large resident population of wildlife.  Up to 25,000 predominantly grazing animals live with predators and about 500 species of birds.  

This conservation area is situated 180 kilometers (110 miles) west of Arusha Town and .covers an area of 8288 square kilometers (3200 square miles). Established in 1959 as a multiple land use area, the Ngorongoro is home to wildlife coexisting with semi-nomadic Maasai pastoralists practicing traditional livestock grazing.  It includes the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest unbroken caldera and a sanctuary for the critically endangered Black Rhino.  The stunning landscape of the Ngorongoro Crater, combined with its spectacular concentration of wildlife, is one the greatest natural wonders on the planet.
