When To Travel

The Best Time to Visit Ngorongoro Crater largely depends on your interests:

  • Dry Season (June to October): This is the peak tourist season when wildlife is easier to spot due to thinner vegetation. The days are generally dry, and the weather is pleasant, making it ideal for game drives.
  • Green Season (November to May): For birdwatchers and travellers seeking fewer crowds, the green season offers lush landscapes and the opportunity to see migratory birds. However, some areas may be inaccessible due to heavy rains.


  • Game Drives: Explore an exhilarating game drive within the Ngorongoro Crater to witness a rich tapestry of wildlife, including lions, leopards, elephants, buffalos, and rhinos. The compact size of the crater ensures exceptional sightings.
  • Photography: Capture the breathtaking landscapes and diverse fauna with your camera. The crater’s unique topography and dramatic scenery provide fantastic photographic opportunities.
  • Walking Safaris: Join guided walking safaris on the crater’s rim to explore its rim forests and gain insights into the flora and fauna of the region. It’s a chance to see smaller species up close.
  • Cultural Visits: Nearby Maasai communities offer cultural encounters where you can learn about their traditional lifestyles, dances, and craftsmanship. Gain an appreciation for their rich heritage.
  • Scenic Views: Take in the panoramic views from the crater’s rim, offering vistas of the entire caldera and the surrounding plains. It’s an ideal spot for picnics and sunset-watching.
