Its a really spectaluar place. Lots of animals closed in a quite small place. We visited Tarangire and Manyara and missed only the rhino from a big 5. We saw 4 rhinos there! Besides that lions, hippos, buffalos, hienas and many more.

This was an excellent experience. I highly recommend staying the night at one of the lodges around here and taking a safari down into the crater for a few days. We booked with Zara Tours. We loved it.

We did an 5-day Serengeti Ngorongoro Safari with Tanzania Horizon Safaris . Everything went completely as planned and we saw so many animals... Great guide, we always felt safe and well taken care of. We are a family of 3 adults
