Most travellers going through Ngorongoro are on organised tours and have their own 4x4s and guides. The breathtaking scenery and incredibly abundant wildlife in the crater is not to be missed. A visit to the Ngorongoro Crater, however, is not the only attraction in the area. There is plenty to see and do.

There are a number of walks and hikes in and around the Ngorongoro Karatu area to suit a wide range of fitness levels. Visit Ngorongoro Crater's smaller sister at Empakaai. Walk up Mount Oldeani and look at the view of Serengeti one way, the crater highlands another and Lake Manyara the third. Meet the local people and learn about their cultures and traditions on a village walk. Or soak up the delicious aromas while walking through the coffee plantations.

We have no scheduled safaris to the Ngorongoro Karatu Area but can include one on a tailor-made East African safari itinerary. We recommend spending at least 2 nights at Karatu. Speak to us about your safari wishlist and we'd be more than happy to design a custom safari to suit your budget and requirements.
