When to go to Ngorongoro
Ngorongoro Crater is part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Authorities argue that as a conservation area, the restrictions and protections are stronger than a national park. Ngorongoro Crater is one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. The crater is in good company because Tanzania is home to three of the wonders of nature from Africa.
The Crater provides an opportunity for visitors to experience 5 of Africa’s Big 7, which include the lion, leopard, elephant, hippopotamus, and rhinoceros. Although the leopard is doubtful because it is usually atop the rim in the forest, you have a fair chance of seeing the other animals. The crater provides one of the most intimate encounters with wildlife and nature.
With Ngorongoro’s wildlife remaining in the steep-walled crater all year round, the question of when to go on a Ngorongoro Crater safari is less about optimising your game viewing experience and more about how many other people and vehicles you want to share the crater with.
High visitor numbers can be expected during the dry July to September peak season and again during the December to February calving season that follows the November rains.
With this in mind, the main April to May rainy season is often considered the best time to visit the Ngorongoro Crater as there are far fewer visitors and the crater is wonderfully lush and green compared to the dusty dry-season landscape.
