Ngorongoro Crater Day Trip


Ngorongoro crater which is also known as the Unbroken Caldera is also a geo-park and a world heritage site is located in the northern Tanzania just 2.5-3 hours’ drive from Arusha.

The Crater was created when a large volcano exploded and collapsed in on itself two to three million years ago. It is famous for both its geological delights and for being a natural reserve which is home to some of the densest large mammal populations in the whole of the African continent. The drive down the into the Crater is an adventure in itself and when you reach the Crater floor, you quickly find yourself amongst large numbers of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, and more than 500 bird species.
