Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Established –1960

Size- 3,200 square miles (8,300 square km)

Location: Northern Tanzania, Arusha region

The view of the Ngorongoro Crater will take your breath away. It’s a huge caldera of 250 sq km in size and 600 m deep. The crater is home to 20,000 large animals including some of Tanzania´s left over black rhino. The wildlife strolling inside the crater makes a striking impression, surrounded by the ancient walls. No fences or boundaries border the crater walls; animals are free to enter or leave the crater, but many of them stay inside for the availability of plentiful water and grazing field on the crater floor throughout the year.

The spectacular area is the place where you can see wildlife and humans coexisting in a natural setting. Beyond the crater rim, the Maasai people herd their cattle across the plains, seemingly oblivious to the herds of wild animals sharing this vast landscape. The area also bears great significance in tracing the origins of human where some of man’s earliest remains have been found, including 3.5 million-year old human footprints.

The natural resources of the area ensure a fantastic experience for tourists.
