Great safari.

We loved it. Great experience with a lot of animals to see... big groups of zebras, gnu, elephants, etc. It is a beautiful park and a day is enough to see it all.

And the crater was o full of life and animals every where. Visiting in this time of year gave us the unique experience to see all the baby animals too. And even... More

Great trip round the crater. Fantastic wild life. Sadly didn't see any Rhino. Broke down on one of our trips but the safari guides all help each other and we were soon on our way again. Don't miss it

We went on our drive after breakfast and sunrise from our hotel, Serena Lodge. A bit pricey to stay in the park for the night but it is totally worth it... More

The Ngorongoro Crater was my favorite of the 3 parks I visited. If you’re short on time or money, for me, it’s the one to do. Being surrounded and protected by the volcano walls made it a very intimate affair even the animal seemed to be more relaxed maybe because of the abundance of food and water. We slept just... More

I Mark from Kenya and a group of 20 from Australia visited Ngorongoro and Serengeti in Tanzania. The place is scenic with an amazing view. Florent from Snow Africa Adventures Ltd. arranged this trip very well, transport, food and accommodation was amazing. The guides were very informative and friendly. I'd definitely recommend this place for an awesome experience. I had... More
