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 our last stay over on our 11 day tour and I must say they “almost” saved the best for last. But to be honest, I loved Serengeti, Tarangire, and Ngorongoro all very much, in their own way. The only disappointment was in not...More
I would recommend Ngorongoro for a short stay as the park is small and a bit crowded with trucks but it is certainly worth seeing. The crater is actually a caldera and is a natural wonder with forest, desert, lake, rivers, rainforest, all in a...More
My brother and I, two Old Boys from Norway, spent a marvellous safari in Tanzania in October, touring Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti National Parks, where we spotted all the so-called Big Five, plus a number of other species. All this not at least thanks to...More
Like everyone else we read the amazing reviews of tons of wildlife to be found in this crater & paid all the huge fees to spend as much time as possible here. We came in October & stayed 2 hours which was more than enough....More

At least five lodges and maybe one or two camps are located on the crater rim. The first lodge from the Ngorongoro Conservation Area gate is Rhino Lodge near the crater overlook. It doesn't offer a view into the crater being on the other side of the rim. At the overlook if one turns right the Sopa Lodge is some eleven or so miles away. If one bears to the left at the overlook the Crater Serena, and two other lodges are located. Don't have my map right handy so I can not tell you distance. I believe the one tented camp is closer to the Sopa.
If one is approaching the crater from the Serengeti then the Serena would be the closest rim lodge and the Sopa would be the furthest. A good guide book should have a map showing these lodges.
