User Reviews – Ngorongoro

Ngorongoro crater is very scenic but our wildlife sighting was much better in Tarangire as well as Serengeti. We saw rhinos from very far since there appears to be some research going with the rhinos or perhaps there has been poaching.
Beautiful area filled with amazing wildlife, fantastic scenery and friendly people!
My wife and I visited Ngorongoro Crater in the summer of 2017 and had an amazing time. Our stop here was part of a larger, week-long safari throughout Tanzania so our time was somewhat limited, but our first day began with beautiful panoramic views of the crater from above before later driving into the crater for a day of wildlife viewing. The vastness of the crater kept things from ever feeling crowded, and we enjoyed seeing a variety of animals including lions, giraffe, hippos, hyenas, wildebeest, gazelles and much more. Watching the sun go down as we drove out made for one of the best views during our time in Africa.
On our second day, we did a guided hike to Olmoti crater with a park ranger. While the terrain was somewhat steep, the views at the top were well worth it and we would highly recommend this trip as a nice alternative to driving around all day. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and gave us lots of facts about the local area and animals.
Overall, our time in the Nogrongoro crater area was fantastic, and I wouldn't hesitate to return on a future trip to Africa or Tanzania.

We witnessed siva cats, black rhinos, forest elephants as well as the typical animals of Africa. The ride out of the crater was beautiful and exhilarating!

This was by far the best safari destination of the three we visited. Fascinating to see all those animals in the crate and such a beautiful scenic.

Not as many animals as I had hoped. I was extremely happy to be there as it is a "wonder of the World" and I would have liked to have stayed longer than we did. It is just amazing to actually see this place.

Ngorongoro conservation area is worth a visit as rhinos can be found here while Serengeti might be too big and too hard to find such an endangered kind of animal. In the crater, there were big herds of zebras, buffalos, wildebeests, elephants and hippos while several prides of lions could be seen as well. The lanscape itself is unique being surrounded by the rain forest in the highland with a great plain at the bottom of the crater. Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge is the best choice to enjoy the magnificent view of the crater.
