Description [ correction ]

An entrance fee is valid for twenty four hours and does not include entrance down into the crater. If you go to Serengeti and come back the same way via the conservancy, you pay the twenty four hour fee again. (Dec-12).

One has to drive through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area if you want to enter Serengeti. It is not possible to pay the entry fees for Ngorongoro at any of their offices or the gate. You have to get the details of their bank accounts for the various banks at their office in Arusha and then deposit the required fees into their bank account. You then have to present the deposit slip at the Ngorongoro office in Karatu, the last village before Ngorongoro. They issue you with a Ngorongoro Card to be presented at the entrance gate. (June 2015).

Travelling Information

This gate only takes cash. (Mar-12). Ask the guides at the gates for information regarding roads in the conservancy, which roads are open etc. - they won't tell you unless you ask. Reportedly the roads are not in that good condition, and it may take longer than one anticipates. (Dec-12).

 Travel Tip!

Plan your time in the conservancy well to avoid being late and having to pay for another 24 hours!

“At Lodoare Gate one has to pay all fees for the Ngorogoro Conservancy. An entrance fee is valid for 24 hours and does not include entrance down into the crater. Entrance fees are about USD230 for 2 adults and 1 4x4 vehicle(Des 2012). To visit the crater costs about USD125 for 2 adults and a vehicle and the time down in the crater varies from season to season, being only 6 hours in high season, when they control the amount of visitors. There are 2 entrances(descents) into the crater. At the Lemala entrance(east) you may enter and exit the crater. Currently the other exit road is being reconstructed, so one has to exit via Lemala. Find out from local tour operators about the rules and roads as they will know what the current situation is. The guides at the gates don't tell you unless you enquire. Plan your time in the consevancy well to avoid being late and having to pay for another 24 hours! The roads are not good and it takes much longer than one thinks. If you go to Serengeti and come back the same way via the conservancy, you pay the 24 hour fee again.” - Mietsie Visser, 2013/03/04
