Ngorongoro Conservation Area Tours

3 Reviews
Ngorongoro Conservation Area
Few places in Tanzania are as beautiful or diverse as the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. This unique destination offers travelers a one-of-a-kind experience with unfettered access to the nature, wildlife and people that make this country an incredible destination. Its volcanic craters, vast savannah, thick forests and rugged bush cover some 8,300 square kilometers of protected land, making it the perfect place to spot high concentrations of African wildlife. 

While the Olduvai Gorge and Maasai people make a visit to the Conservation Area memorable, it’s the Ngorongoro Crater that draws travelers to this natural wonder. Covering some 260 square kilometers, this sunken crater formed by a volcanic explosion is home to more than 25,000 animals. Black rhinos, thousands of wildebeests, zebras and gazelles graze on this fertile plain. The crater is also home to the densest population of lions in the world. 

Travelers who visit the crater in December or June will also catch part of the legendary migration, when 1.7 million wildebeests, 260,000 zebras and 470,000 gazelles make the trip between the Serengeti and Maasai Mara. It’s a once in a lifetime experience that is not to be missed.

Ngorongoro Crater Day Trip (Pick up and Drop Off in Arusha)

Unique to Tarylin Safaris:1) We provide one of the best binocular brands in the world so you can see the animals close up and in high definition like never before2) We take high quality photos throughout the trip simply so you don't have to! Sit back, relax and enjoy the experience first hand without always staring down a lens, comfortable in the knowledge that you'll still be able to post your trip all over social media to impress your friends at the end of your adventure. 3) We only employ female safari guides in a notoriously male dominated industry and we pay them an above standard wage which means that by booking a Tarylin Safari you'll be helping to empower the women of Tanzania to follow their dreams, whatever they may be.4) Tarylin is owned by a trained safari guide so the emphasis is very much on the quality of the guiding and customer service. You'll hear facts about the animals that you'll never hear anywhere else and they'll be presented in an entertaining fashion.
