Ngorongoro Crater

What was once a gigantic volcano is now one of the must-see attractions in Tanzania. The Ngorongoro Crater in the country’s northern regions is believed to have been higher than Mount Kilimanjaro before it erupted.

Today, the volcano is collapsed and eroded, and it is here where you’ll discover an extensive highland area famous for its 600-meter-deep crater. Guests also have the opportunity of descending hundreds of meters down to the floor of the crater to explore the forests and grass plains, all the while searching for elephants, lions, zebras, and wildebeest.

This conservation area is home to approximately 40,000 people that share the land with some 30,000 animals ranging from leopard and cheetah to elephant and hyena. As one of the most important prehistoric sites in the world, the crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. Aside from soaking up the tranquility in the air, bird watching here is superb, especially around Lake Migadi that attracts flocks of flamingoes to its shallows.

Lake Manyara National Park

It’s a must-visit site if you’re traveling to either the Serengeti or Ngorongoro Crater.

Reaching the top of the bluff that extends out for miles toward the lake comes with the reward of stunning scenery. The lake’s shores, encrusted with pink flamingoes, are home to more than 400 bird species.

Featuring a ground-water forest, woodlands, and the Maji Moto hot springs, the park really is a fascinating attraction. The highlight of the park is the impressive elephant population, but it is also home to the world’s largest concentration of baboons.

The park starts out on the powder-white sandy shore of Lake Tanganyika to the west and expands into the lush jungle. The dense forest is alive with the sound of chattering chimps and ground-dwelling mammals. The park is only accessible by boat, which is why it is home to the last of Africa’s wild chimpanzees.
