The Ngorongoro Crater is a Nature Reserve in Tanzania in the provinces of Arusha. The park was established on 01.01.1979 and covers an area of 8.292 km². The Ngorongoro Crater is a Big Five reserve and offers the possibility of self-drive safaris.
Ngorongoro borders the Serengeti to the northwest and the Maasai's sacred God Mountain, Ol Doinyo Lengai, to the north. The crater was formed when a volcanic mountain collapsed and a visit is a unique experience. There are few places that have wildlife density and diversity at this level. It is not unusual to see all the Big Five in one day.
