Additional information

Ngorongoro Conservation AreaNgorongoro Conservation Area Ngorongoro is a fascinating and unusual Conservation Area which includes the Ngorongoro Crater at its centre, and then extends through the Crater Highlands, in which local tribes are permitted to maintain their traditional lifestyles. Read More The name ‘Ngorongoro’ comes form a Masai word Ilkorongoro, which was the name given to the age group of Masaai warriors who defeated the previous occupants of the area, the Datong, around the 1800s. The sounds of the bells that the Masaai wore during the battle that were said to have terrified their enemies into submission, was ‘koh-rohg-roh’ and it is from this that the name Ngorongoro is derived. The Masai refer to the Ngorongoro Southern Highlands as ‘o’lhoirobi’, which means the cold highlands while the Germans also referred to the climate calling these the ‘winter highlands’ The entire Ngorongoro conservation area encompasses Ngorongoro Crater, Embagai Crater, Olduvai Gorge, famous for its palaeontological relics and Lake Masek. Lake Eyasi marks part of the southern boundary and the Serengeti National Park lies to the west. This extraordinary volcanic landscape is rich and fertile, with stunning craters and lakes, and the high altitude creates a malaria-free micro climate. Even if time is limited, this natural but accessibly small caldera ensures a rewarding safari. Ngorongoro Crater is also presently one of the most likely areas in Tanzania to see the endangered Black Rhino, as a small population is thriving in this idyllic and protected environment, one of the only areas where they continue to breed in the wild.
Serengeti National ParkThe Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest on earth. The essential features of climate, vegetation and fauna have barely changed in the past million years. Early man himself made an appearance in Olduvai Gorge about two million years ago. Some patterns of life, death, adaptation and migration are as old as the hills themselves. A world heritage site and recently proclaimed the 7th wonder of the world, the Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephants and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle. The spectacle of predator versus prey dominates Tanzania’s greatest park. Golden-maned lion prides feast on the abundance of plain grazers. Solitary leopards haunt the acacia trees lining the Seronera River, while a high density of cheetahs prowls the south eastern plains. But there is more to the Serengeti than large mammals. Gaudy agama lizards and rock hyraxes scuffle around the surfaces of the park’s isolated granite koppies. A full 100 varieties of dung beetle have been recorded, as have 500-plus bird species, ranging from the outsized ostrich and bizarre secretary bird of the open grassland, to the black eagles. As enduring as the game-viewing is the liberating sense of space that characterizes the Serengeti Plains, stretching across sun burnt savannah to a shimmering golden horizon at the end of the earth. Yet, after the rains, this golden expanse of grass is transformed into an endless green carpet flecked with wildflowers. And there are also wooded hills and towering termite mounds, rivers lined with fig trees and acacia woodland stained orange by dust.and often luxurious safari tourism, and to generate an income for the local Samburu and Ilaikipiak and Mokogodo Maasai communities.
