Ngorongoro Crater is a large volcanic caldera which hosts an advanced ecosystem perfect for the inhabitation and preservation of a wide variety of animals, from the king of the jungle, the lion, to the horned beast, the rhino. The crater, which has a land area size of around 8,288 square kilometers, was originally established as a national park in 1959.
In 1979, the park received a title as a World Heritage Site, ensuring that the uniqueness of Ngorongoro remains protected and preserved. The Ngorongoro Crater is an amazing place to visit and enjoy a vast landscape from heights that stretch widely. The bottom of the crater floor is actually the remaining of a collapsed volcanic caldera.
The walls surrounding the crater floor are around 2,000 feet height and serve as the perfect way to preserve the wildlife inside. Some of the wildlife you can expect to see at the Ngorongoro Crater include the Big 5, consisting of rhino, elephant, buffalo, lion, and leopard. You can also see hyenas as they hang around the large watering hole, planning an attack on an unsuspecting flamingo.
The crater also serves a great location for bird spotters with many different types inhabiting the park, namely the kori bustard and the black kite which exist in larger populations than at other parks within the north of Tanzania. Not only the wildlife and scenery attract many tourists to the crater each year, as equally interesting are the fossils that have been found in Olduvai Gorge which remains one of the most vital prehistoric landmarks, with archaeologists estimating some fossilized remains of hominid species to be over three million years old.
If you are planning a Tanzania safari of the northern circuit, then this park is a must-add to your itinerary. The Ngorongoro Crater is preferable to the most famous park in the world, the Serengeti National Park.
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania's oldest and most popular national park, is a World Heritage Site which has been recently proclaimed as the 7th worldwide wonder. It is famed for its annual migration, when about 6 million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebras and 300,000 Thomson's gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet, even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti National Park offers the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa with its great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands of elands, topis, kongonis, impalas, and Grant’s gazelles.
Lake Manyara National Park is known for its flamingos that inhabit the lake. During the wet season, they inhabit the edges of the lake in flocks of thousands but they are not so present during the dry season. More than 400 species of birds inhabit the park and many remain throughout the year. Because of this, Lake Manyara National Park is a good spot for bird watching. Visitors to the park can expect to see upwards to 100 different species of bird on any day.
Leopards, Maasai lions, cheetahs, elephants, blue monkeys, dik-diks, gazelles, hippopotami, Maasai giraffes, impalas, zebras, and many more wild animals inhabit this park, many can be seen throughout the year. There is a hippo pond at one end of the park where visitors can get out of their cars and observe from a safe distance. The leopards and lions are both known to lounge in the trees while not hunting for prey.
