The viewpoint stop at the top of the crater takes your breath away. The vast caldrun is so gigantic it seems to just go one forever. The ride up and down the crater is even better especially in the early morning light. The animals are...More
If you are in Tanzania this is the only place other than Kenya if you want to see a rhino. There are only 16-20 left. They are going to be extinct soon as the gene pool is so bad from inbreeding but they are in...More
Did a day trip into the crater. Plenty of wildlife activities. Do not get out of the vehicle and do not sit on the roof. Wildlife is everywhere and the lions do not pay any attention to the horde of land cruisers. The picnic area...More
It is truly animal kingdom. One realises how we human beings have killed our fellow living being of this planet. One enjoys to watch so many animals roaming freely with out any fear. We should more such places on this Earth. Great experience. Must visit...More
This was a nice preview of the Ngorongoro Crater. Greener, and therefore more difficult to spot wildlife because of vegetation also because you can't drive down into it as you can when you visit Ngorongoro
The crater was packed full of Safari-mobiles which stirred up a lot of dust. Saw many zebras, wildebeests, hyenas; a few lions, hippos, a black rhino, elephants. Maybe we just came on an "off" day for the animals, but I much preferred the open areas...More
Beautiful small fertile crater with a great variety of wildlife. Baboons, buffalos, many beautiful varieties of birds. Do not miss the high observation point and be sure to allocate at least 20 minutes to visit the small free museum close to the observation point. The...More
OK stupid question. Can you see Kilimanjaro from Ngurdoto Crater?

Maybe. This crater is in Arusha NP. Depending on whether Kili is 'shy' (cloud covered) you may or may not see it from the park. On a good day, you can see Kili and Meru. However, the crater is in a wooded higher elevations. The roads are hemmed in with trees. There are some vantage points to see the crater. The one we stopped at had a limited, but very lovely view - of parts of the crater floor. One cannot go into the crater itself. I just checked my guidebook and it says you can see Kili,...More
just back ! 2 nd report (11 Replies)
day 1 in Tanzania I wanted to see Arusha before leaving on safari, I knew on the way back we would not have this chance. Therefore, after breakfast in the lodge we made our way to town; Down the bumpy road we walked for about half an hour, through a village. I was surprised, no touts at all, people were happy with a jambo , a wave and a smile. it was very pleasant. We are carefull with photographs, I know people are sensitive about this. On the way to Arusha, the kids don't know where to...More

Glad you took the time to see the town and see how the the people live and are. Isn't Arusha NP a little treasure? A good one day trip from Arusha, or as a starter park. <<the kids and hubby kept saying : it can't get better then this>> I can hardly wait to read what the family thinks of Tarangire.
