Ngorongoro Crater Safari Tours

A visit to the Ngorongoro Crater is one of the highlights to any Tanzanian 'northern circuit' safari.

When advising clients of a Ngorongoro Crater tour, it is important to keep a few points in mind. The Ngorongoro Crater can get busy, and in high-season will have in excess of 200 vehicles descending to the crater floor. An early start to the day is well worth it to beat the crowds and descend first. With this in mind, we typically advise our clients to spend two nights in the Ngorongoro Crater area, combining one day descending to the crater floor (there is a hefty charge for each day's descent) and another day exploring the surrounding coffee plantations and villages.

When entering the Ngorongoro Crater, your driver will take a pack-lunch for one of the many picnic sites, and you will need to leave the Crater by 6.00pm.

Please see below for all of Ngorongoro Crater tours. Not finding a tour that meets your needs? No problem! Contact one of our experienced safari experts who can help you tailor-make your itinerary.
