Ngorongoro Crater

Excess Africa Wants You To Think Wild!!

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) offers one of the richest wildlife viewing experiences on the African continent. Part of the Serengeti ecosystem, the Ngorongoro region covers 8 292km² and encompasses expansive short-grass plains on the southern border of the Serengeti National Park and the dramatic Ngorongoro Highlands region, with its enormous calderas and spectacular vistas.
The NCA is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that takes its name from the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest inactive, intact and unfilled volcanic caldera, formed two to three million years ago. Approximately 30 000 animals live in the natural enclosure formed by the 300km² crater, while the greater conservancy surroundings are home to wildebeest and zebra migratory movement in the wet season. It was recently voted one of the new Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. A Ngorongoro safari is one for the books.
