We started with the crater before visiting the Serengeti - it was fantastic, with animals left right and centre. Huge variety, and it was the only place we saw rhinos. Only need to spend 1 day.

The crater was our final stop of the safari and we were fortunate to see a rhino, in addition to many other animals and the beautiful terrain. After being in solidarity in the large Serengeti park, I wasn't sure about the crater, but am very...More

This place is amazing and provides a great opportunity to see the animals of Tanzania up close and personal. You see how they live together, you see the circle of life and you maybe even catch sight of a rhino.

We spent 7 days on safaris in Tanzania. While I was looking forward to the wildlife at the Ngorongora crater I was a little underwhelmed when compared to the other parks we had been in. Tarangeri and the Serengeti seemed to offer more animals than...More

Awesome place. Simply put, it is paradise as in the Booklets of the religious group that goes door by door. But the animals eat each other from time to time. So many animals, all of them I think and of course the Black Rhino.

If you came to Africa to see wildlife this is a must see location but the scenery is also beautiful. Standing at the top of the crater and watching the sun go down is magical.

Such a great place to visit. 5 minutes after we get into the bottom we see lions attempting to kill a buffalo but the buffalo chased them away! Zebras, gnus, warthog, buffalo, grants and thomson gazelle everywhere. Hippos in a pool in the middle. Lions...More

Ngorongoro is truly breathtaking! Pictures cannot do this place any justice. We did our Safari with Fair Travel and they were extremely kind, friendly, and knowledgable. I would suggest everyone to choose fair travel for an amazing safari experience.

We have visited most of worlds heritage sites. This one is very much a jaw dropping experience. Having exploded with a massive eruption millions of years ago the Crater is now a refuge to many animals including migrating wildebeest and zebras and rhinos. We actually...More

Sorry for the delayed answer. Do NOT miss Ngorongoro Crater! You will absolutely love it. We saw a female lion drag a zebra (after kill) 1/4 mile from open prairie to a shaded area. We saw so many animals and it is just... More
