Ngorongoro conservational area lies west of Arusha, linking to the Serengeti in the north-west and the Great Rift Valley in the east. It is one of the well-known parks in Tanzania’s northern region. The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest Caldera in the world and the area’s main attraction. The Ngorongoro Crater floor spans an area of 304 square kilometers and measures 19 kilometers in circumference. It features a vertical drop of 610 meters below the crater rim. The Ngorongoro Crater is truly breathtaking to see. The crater floor is made up of a variety of habitats, including grassland, swamps, woods, and Lake Makat, which is a central soda lake, filled by the Munge River and means “salt” in Maasai. Wildlife is drawn to drink, wallow, graze, hide, and climb in all these different habitats. Although animals are free to enter and exit this enclosed environment, the rich volcanic soil, lush woods, and spring-fed lakes on the crater floor (as well as the somewhat steep crater slopes) tend to encourage both grazers and predators to stay throughout the year.
The area was formed in 1959 as a diverse land use area, with wildlife living with semi-nomadic Maasai pastoralists practicing traditional cattle grazing. It features the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, the largest crater in the world, and the 14-kilometer-long Olduvai Gorge, a deep canyon. This 2 days Ngorongoro safari is the remarkable short trip of Tanzania that takes you to the world’s largest caldera
