About the park

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is located in the Crater Highlands Area about 190 km west of Arusha City lies between Lake Manyara and Serengeti National Parks. 

It has an approximately 8,292 sq. km coverage area consisting of the four distinctive attractions; the Ngorongoro Crater itself, the Olduvai Gorge and Ndutu, the Empakai Crater and the Oldonyo Lengai Mountain.

Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater is the central unique attraction in the area considered to be the world’s largest intact walls caldera and one of the seventh natural wonders of Africa.

Olduvai Gorge

The Gorge is found in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area where human has been part of the Ngorongoro landscape for millions of years. The findings of Dr. Louis Leakey have scientifically proved that, the earliest man has lived here.


Ndutu is located in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, in the south-eastern plains of the Serengeti ecosystem. The plains around Ndutu are the main holding ground for migratory animals where vast herds congregate and linger for more than four months, from December to April, before they start moving across the Serengeti in search of greener pastures and water.

Empakai Crater

Empakai Crater (sometimes spelled Empakaa Crater) is just what you’re looking for among unique natural wonders of Africa in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
