Ngorongoro

Explore the Majestic Ngorongoro Crater with Great Pelican Safari

Experience the natural wonder of the Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage site and a prime jewel in Tanzania’s crown of natural attractions. This vast volcanic crater offers a unique ecosystem with some of the most stunning wildlife viewing in the world.

A Natural Sanctuary in a Volcanic Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater, formed when a giant volcano exploded and collapsed on itself two to three million years ago, is the largest intact caldera in the world. Spanning approximately 260 square kilometers and enclosed by towering walls rising 600 meters from the crater floor, this natural amphitheatre offers a haven for wildlife and an unmatched, breathtaking natural setting.

Diverse Habitats and Rich Biodiversity

Within the crater, you’ll find an extraordinary range of environments, from lakes to forests and savannahs, each supporting a variety of wildlife. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the few places in Africa where you can see the Big Five (lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo) in their natural habitat. The crater is also home to hyenas, jackals, cheetahs, and an impressive population of pink flamingos wading in the shallow waters of Lake Magadi, the crater’s soda lake.

A Conservation Success Story

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a pioneering experiment in multiple land use where human habitation coexists with wildlife in a natural setting. Great Pelican Safari supports these conservation efforts by promoting responsible tourism practices that contribute to the sustainable development of the area and the well-being of its indigenous communities.
