Luxury safaris in the Ngorongoro Crater
The World's Richest Bowl of Wildlife
Views from atop the 600 metre high walls are spectacular and open up a new world of wonder to those visiting this gorgeous country. A great introduction to Tanzania, this nature wonderland offers you sightings of the big five as well as a whole host of excellent plains game and even the elusive leopard can be seen perched high in the trees.
Flamingos can be seen wading through the central soda lake and the freshwater lakes provide some excellent birdwatching opportunities. Hyena are sometimes seen following the lions from a distance in hopes of a meal and jackal can often be skulking around the bushier areas of the crater.
Due to the fact that this natural spectacle is so very famous, it can be extremely busy. Please don’t be put off by this; we do recommend a short visit here and with our expertise, we will ensure you are thoroughly touched by your time spent sipping a nice cold drink from on high gazing over this immense scene.
