As the animals do not migrate in and out of the Ngorongoro crater you are sure to see as many animals as you can expect on the crater floor for just 3 to 4 hours of your visit, the drive from Arusha takes 3 hours and you will spend few minutes at the entrance gate for signing in before you enter the park.
Comprised of forests, savanna, and highland plains, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area covers a nearly 3,200 square miles area in Tanzania. It is a protected area governed by the Tanzania national Parks Authority and one of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. One of the main attractions for the conservation area is the Ngorongoro Crater; it is the world’s largest intact, inactive, and un-flooded volcanic caldera. This crater formed approximately three million years ago after large volcano exploded and collapsed.
Ngorongoro crater is about 12 miles across and 2,000 feet deep. Crater floor is about 100 square miles. Unlike smaller craters on top of dormant volcanoes, which also often are tourism destinations, Ngorongoro Crater is home to tens of thousands of large animals and people as well. It is a natural wonder worth visiting and protecting at the same time.
You will drive through the high and steep lanes until you reach the carter view point where you will stop for the pictures before you drive further to crater descending road. After descending into the crater you will drive through different vegetations including forest, lake and hills. The animals you can expect to see inside the crater include Rhino, elephant, lion, leopard, zebra, wildebeest, Jackal, baboon just to mention few. The lunch will be served at the hippo pools while enjoying the view of the hippopotamus in Ngoitoktok hippo pond.

Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro Conservation supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants.
