Ngorongoro Crater Day Trip



Route Highlights:

  • Best Tanzania Safari Destination

  • Tanzania’s top safari parks and game reserves

The crater is located at Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority; a UNESCO-protected World Heritage Site and an International Biosphere Reserve, the largest intact crater in the world and the second largest extinct crater in the world has a spectacular concentration of wildlife.

Ngorongoro was an active volcano some eight million years ago whose cone collapsed, leaving the huge crater you see today. The Crater rim is wooded with mountain forest vegetation.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority has recently taken total control of one of its trails within the Northern Highland Forest Reserve (NHFR). In the past, Gibbs Farm Lodge which is situated just a few meters outside the Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority boundary to the south was responsible for organizing all the hikes into the forest.

Best way to get to Ngorongoro Crater

Anyone can go there by road from Arusha to the Lodoare Gate entrance gate which is 160 kilometers long.

The road is recently built and the entire journey is on the tarmac and it takes about two hours.

Unless you stay on the main roads, which are graveled, a 4×4 safari vehicle is essential when entering tour Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park.
