The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the natural wonders of the world with one of the highest wildlife densities on earth. In addition to large herds of antelopes, wildebeest and zebra, sightings of the Big Five – lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard – are frequent and the natural beauty of the crater adds a unique grandeur to your safari experience. The conservation area is also home to the Maasai people and their cattle which co-exist with the existing wildlife in a unique ecosystem. The foothills between the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Lake Manyara offer beautiful lush green landscapes dotted with small villages and picturesque coffee and tea plantations, which you can explore on bicycle, horseback or on a wonderful walk.
