WALKING SAFARI ACTIVITIES

Ngorongoro Walking Safari on the Crater Rim

Embark on a remarkable journey with Safaris Africa United as we invite you to explore the awe-inspiring Ngorongoro Crater rim on foot. This unique experience offers an exhilarating perspective of one of Tanzania’s most iconic landscapes, nestled within the UNESCO-listed Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

As the largest intact caldera globally, spanning approximately 19 kilometers in diameter and plunging over 600 meters deep, the Ngorongoro Crater is a sanctuary for an array of wildlife, including the famed Big Five, cheetahs, hyenas, wildebeests, zebras, and diverse antelope species.

While traditional game drives are popular for exploring the crater floor, our walking safari provides a refreshing alternative, allowing you to marvel at the crater’s magnificence from above. Guided by experienced naturalists, our small-group walks commence from the lodge or campsite within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Meander through verdant forests and expansive grasslands as our knowledgeable guides share insights into the local flora, fauna, and geological marvels of the crater. Along the rim, panoramic vistas reveal the crater’s vast expanse and the bustling wildlife below.

Ngorongoro Crater

Delight in the diverse avian population inhabiting the area, including secretary birds, Kori bustards, and vibrant flamingos adorning the soda lakes, creating a spectacle for bird enthusiasts.

Encounters with Maasai herdsmen and their cattle offer glimpses into the traditional lifestyle harmoniously intertwined with the wildlife-rich ecosystem. For centuries, the Maasai people have coexisted with nature, nurturing a profound connection to the land and its inhabitants.

Our walking safaris on the rim prioritize appreciation of the scenery and ecosystem insights, ensuring a memorable and enriching experience. As a protected area, stringent conservation measures safeguard the Ngorongoro Crater’s ecological integrity and the well-being of both visitors and wildlife.

    February 01 to 8th ,2024. We planned our Tanzania Safari 5 months in advance. Cornelius and his team was able to answer all of our questions . Within a reasonable time despite the time difference of 8 hours. He was always available to inform us 24 7 on choices of itinerary suggestions of the best places to visit . The logistics were very well organized with respect to flight arrangements (Nairobi, Tanzania), the choice of camps , accommodations (Safari), and Hotels (Zanzibar). We spent half a day visiting the Olduvai Gorge Museum. We spent 4 days on Safari . in Serengeti, Ndutu, ,Ngorongoro ,Tarangire and 4 days in Zanzibar. The Guides were very knowledgeable and respectful of our needs. The Safari surpassed our expectations. Lorian and Elias were professional guides . We recommend Africa Safari United for you're next Safari. We had a fantastic trip. Flavio and Amalfy

    Would recommend anyone looking to go on Safari to go with Safaris Africa United! Cornelius was amazing throughout the planning and scheduling phase, always replying within minutes. He was very thorough when providing information on the parks and local information, and went out of his way to ensure our itinerary met all of our expectations. We were then blessed to have a fantastic guide named Mike, who made our safari enjoyable, clearly detailing incredible facts about every species we came across, as well as explaining local cultural customs. There are many safari operators out there, but after comparing notes with other travelers we met, I have no doubt that Safaris Africa United offer the best experience on the market!

    My overall experience was above my expectations! I did a 5 days safari with my girlfriend (from Burundi) and with my father (from Canada). Mgona was our guide. He was really kind to us and very knowledgeable. At our arrival at Kilimanjaro airport, Mgona was already there to welcome us. Our trip/itinerary was already settled. The choices of hotel and the food were perfect. I had the chance to visit between 35 to 40 countries around the world and I never encounter a place with that kind of customer services. Sometimes, it was a bit too much, but let's be honest, everyone likes to be treated like a lion king. Cornelius, the owner of Safari Africa United, was always quick to respond on WhatsApp or via email. The safari itself is not cheap but worth every penny. We saw hundred of thousand of animals. Suggestion : 7 days Safari would be even better. You will be running less and spread the travel time over more days

    I did a 4-day safari with Cornel -- just the two of us! -- back in 2019 before he left a larger safari company to start Safaris Africa United. We made it to Lake Manyara, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro Crater in our limited time. I cannot say enough good things about Cornel as a safari guide and a travel companion. I had a wonderful wildlife-viewing experience -- including a special morning with just us a lion pride at Lake Manyara! -- and Cornel was wonderful company. It was like having an awesome road trip with a new friend, and the whole experience was a dream come true. He is professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and always on the lookout for how to make the experience excellent.

    La comunicación fluida con Cornelius y Mónica nos dio la confianza de contratar Safaris Africa United para un tour a través de varios parques naturales en la zona norte de Tanzania (Tour Faru). Un tour que con el coche privado y la atención especial de nuestro guía, Tesha, permitió que toda la familia disfrutara de esta experiencia. Mencionar que mi madre, llegó a Tanzania en silla de ruedas y muletas a causa de un accidente antes del viaje, y tanto Cornelius como Tesha, hicieron todo lo posible para que disfrutase al 100% del viaje. Tanzania es un país maravilloso, su gente, flora, fauna... te deja sin palabras. Una experiencia inolvidable para toda la familia.

    Acabamos de aterrizar en España de nuestra primera experiencia en un safari. No queremos esperar más a poder dejar nuestra opinión por aquí, ya que queremos compartir lo vivido. La elección con la agencia ha sido un 10, tanto la gestión con Monica, Cornelius y nuestro guía y chofer Tesha, así como con las personas que hemos coincidido en los diferentes alojamientos. Cabe destacar la amabilidad tan grande y la entrega de todos ellos, nos hicieron sentirnos protagonistas de esta experiencia. Nuestro guía Tesha, y gran conductor, hizo que esta experiencia nunca se nos olvide. Nos volvemos sintiendo mucha gratitud, y con tranquilidad de saber que no podríamos a ver elegido algo mejor.
