Ngorongoro is not a national park but a multiple use conservation area where people and wildlife co-exist in their natural setting. Ngorongoro is a scenically different and fascinating Conservation Area at the centre of which is the Ngorongoro Crater. The landscape then extends through the Crater Highlands where local tribes can maintain their tradition in as natural an environment as possible. The landscape is rich and fertile and the crater is reputed to have the densest concentration of wildlife in Africa and at its centre an extraordinary amount of pink hued flamingos.
Ngorongoro is also known as the paradise of the “garden of Eden” because of the pure, unspoilt nature and the high numbers of game such as buffalos, hyenas, leopards, lions, elephants and zebras

Ngorongoro crater at 2286km above sea level is the largest and huge unbroken caldera in the world. Very steep walls rising 610m from the crater floor surround it. It is a natural amphi-theatre, which measures 19.2kms in diameter and 304 sp kms in area. It is a home to upto 30000 animals including some of Tanzania’s last remaining black rhino. The rhino emerge from the forests in the mists of early morning, and their pre-historic figures making a striking impression, surrounded by the ancient crater walls. Animals are free to enter or leave the crater, but many of them stay for the plentiful water and grazing available on the crater floor through out the year.

The Ngorongoro crater is widely known as the Eighth Wonder of the World.

The best time to go is when it's dry - between August and February. During this time the available water has shrunk Cheetah walking - Ngorongoro Crater, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania. and the lush vegetation that can obscure the animals has thinned out. Less water means there are fewer places available for the animals to drink. Eventually all inhabitants, big and small, end up having to congregate near the waters edge. With only a little bit of driving you will probably be able to see just about every animal that lives inside the crater during this season.
