Ngorongoro Crater Ascent Road Closure

From 5th July 2012 the Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority will close the Ascent Crater road for 1 year to upgrade the existing gravel road to concrete paving.

Descending into the Crater will continue through Seneto Gate as usual but the ascent will now be through Lemala Gate near Sopa area.

This makes a safari from the Ngorongoro Crater to reach Serengeti on the same day an extra 2-3 hours drive.
