From the verdant sparkling waterways of the Okavango Delta to the arid expanse of the great Kalahari, Botswana is a land of great contrast. This precious, peaceful country offers a plethora of luxury accommodation as well as exhilarating mobile camping and tranquil house boat accommodation.
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a protected area and a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in north west of Tanzania. It is named after Ngorongoro Crater, a large volcanic caldera within the area.
The western portion of the park abuts the Serengeti National Park (also a UNESCO World Heritage Site), and the area comprising the two parks and Kenya’s Masai Mara game reserve is home to the Great Migration, a massive annual migration of millions of wildebeest, zebras, gazelles, and other animals.
The area also contains Olduvai Gorge, one of the most important paleo-anthropological sites in the world. The land is multi-use and unique because it is the only conservation area in Tanzania that protects wildlife while allowing human habitation. Approximately 25,000 large animals, mostly antelope live in the crater.
