Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a world heritage sight in Northern Tanzania that is home to a plethora of exotic animals, unique bird species, and the worlds largest unfilled volcanic caldera. It’s proximity to other conservation areas make it easy to pair a visit to Ngorongoro with other safari destinations, like a safari to both Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater.
Seeing the Ngorongoro Crater
In addition to wildlife sightings, the main draw to Ngorongoro Conservation Area is the Ngorongoro Crater. It was formed millions of years ago when the volcano erupted and collapsed on itself. Now, it is home to a unique landscape that features important water sources for nearby animals.
