Most visitors come to Ngorongoro as part of an extensive Northern circuit safari. Ngorongoro is well connected to Lake Manyara, Tarangire, Serengeti and Arusha by good paved roads. There are also two small airstrips at Ngorongoro where light aircrafts can land.
Visitors need to fly to Kilimanjaro International Airport at Moshi, situated at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro. From there visitors can get a charter flight, take a taxi or make use of the shuttle service. The distance from Moshi to Arusha town is about 55km.
Take note: The road from Arusha to Lodoare Entrance Gate is 160km long. As of recently, the entire journey is on tarmac and it takes about two hours. Unless you stay on the main roads, which are graveled, a 4x4 vehicle is essential when entering the Ngorongoro Conservation Area
