According to the website about the Ngorogoro, this region is considered to be the “eight wonder of the world”. (Ngorongoro Conservation Area)
Tourism is critical to the region, and there is much to see and do for visitors. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the Serengeti Natural Park in Tanzania is home to the world’s largest density of free ranging game. Stimulate your senses by viewing gazelle and zebra in their native habitat. Their enemies, like lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas also live here. Lurking overhead are flying predators like vultures.
There is a variety of accommodation options available for the traveler to Ngorogoro. Choose from rustic off-the-beaten path shelters, simple lodges, or luxury safari tents and camps. Make Grumeti River camp your base camp and see more outdoor life like crocodiles, buffaloes, and rhinos. Grumeti River Camp is nearby Lake Victoria, the world’s second largest lake, and these species frequent the lake area.
Dining al fresco at dusk in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is an experience you will long remember. The night is alive with a symphony of music from owls, monkeys, insects, and other nocturnal residents of this African veldt. These are sounds you won’t hear on average camping trips.

Oldonyo Lengai is still active, and you can climb to the top for an amazing view. Other must-see craters are Olmoti, and Empakaai.
