It has been dubbed the 8th natural wonder of the world
and there is quite simply no place like it on earth. The Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site
and it is the undisputed Eden of Africa. So why has it taken me all these years to put together a photographic safari to this icon of Africa? Well, I have visited the crater extensively for the last six years, searching for a way to unlock its photographic potential and finally I have discovered the secret. I now share this secret with you so that you can get awesome and unique photographs.
The Ngorongoro Crater affectionately known as ‘the crater’ is nature’s own version of Jurassic Park. Surrounded by 360 degree and 600m (1968ft) high walls, the crater is the largest intact and unfilled caldera in the world. At the bottom you find Africa’s most incredible ecosystem where some of the largest elephant bulls roam plus
and black rhinoceroses
, not to mention a smorgasbord of
plains game. It is an ancient, timeless place of wonder and unspeakable beauty. This is a bucket list item and something everyone who loves Africa just has to see at least once in their lifetime!
This photo safari is specifically designed with photographers in mind and very carefully timed so that there are moody skies, incredible backgrounds and dramatic light. At this time of year there is almost no one else in the crater so you will have the place to yourself
. If you are a photographer who enjoys playing with light and lines and if you enjoy composing your shot and capturing frames that show an animal in its environment then don’t miss this safari. It is also a great safari to see predators in action, as the crater is jam-packed with predators and prey alike. The chance of seeing predator action is therefore high due to the confined space that the predators and prey live in. Expansive views of forests and green plains await.
The 2nd leg of this safari dovetails beautifully with the crater in that we visit a very special part of the Serengeti where lions on rocky koppies and our vast expansive views continue. The word 'siringet' means 'vast' in the language of the Maasai and the Serengeti really needs no introduction. If you want to experience real, wild and expansive Africa then look no further.
