This crater spreads for 265 sq km and has 610 m/ 2,000 ft high walls, making it virtually a Noah’s ark, containing almost every species of wildlife that is indigenous to East Africa. It’s one of the very rare locations in the whole continent where you can witness the black rhino. The crater has a river, several swamps, a soda lake with a great concentration of flamingos, a forest and open plains. It’s also famous for its elephants which are the largest in the world and have huge tusks. Ngorongoro is truly a Wonder of the Natural World.

We had five beautiful days on a luxury safari trip. Our driver/ guide Chudi did an amazing job. One of us had a birthday while we were on the safari. Chudi prepared her birthday and found a Masai dress for her, we were very happy because we had never done a birthday party of that design. He was very kind, friendly, knowledgeable and gave us lots of information. He did the best to make sure we saw everything we needed. Thanks to him we saw the big five. Our accommodation in karatu and Serengeti was amazing. We are glad to have chosen Rashad Adventure Limited. All communication from beginning was excellent.highly recommend Rashad Adventure.

  • Generally, Tanzania is a dream destination for wildlife enthusiasts. With abundant national parks such as the Serengeti, you have the opportunity to witness an incredible array of wildlife, including zebras, giraffes, rhinos, lions, leopards and elephants. Going on a safari with experienced guides can ensure a well-planned experience. The more days you spend in the wilderness, the better are your chances of spotting diverse animals.

  • The best time to go on a safari depends on your wishes and expectations. Tanzania offers great opportunities year-round. The Great Migration usually happens November to June, with the exact timing depending on the species and distinct herds. The dry season from June to October is also great for wildlife watching when animals congregate around water sources, making it easier to spot them.

    June through October are the most popular months for safari as they offer pleasant weather with lower humidity. You can expect rain torrents from March to May and occasional short rainstorms from November to December. Rain can make the roads muddy and occasionally inaccessible.

Your guide will usually meet you at the Kilimanjaro International Airport and take you to Arusha on Day 1.

  • We highly recommend that you cover all your bases with both emergency medical and travel insurance. 

    With medical insurance, if you have an accident or medical emergency on or off the mountain, you’ll avoid paying out of pocket for costly expenses. This covers everything from hospital treatments to emergency air transportation and more.
