The Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtaking place, with its steep sides and vast grassland in its bowl. It provides visitors with incredible wildlife viewing in a setting about as spectacular as is physically possible. While there is no accommodation on the crater floor, there are a number of luxury lodges balanced around its rim, giving incredible views across the crater floor and providing instant access to the crater floor for day time game drives.
The major attraction of the vast Ngorongoro Conservation Area is the Ngorongoro Crater, the world's largest intact caldera, on whose floor over 25,000 animals thrive.
There is plenty more to see and do in the area, too; the fascinating archaeological site at Olduvai Gorge, nature walks, hikes and treks in the mountains, mountain biking and interactions with the local Maasai. Luxury accommodation is offered by various high-end lodges perched on the edge of the rim, offering spectacular views of this natural phenomenon.
