Ngorongoro Meaning – Definition in Maasai Language

Ngorongoro Conservation Area is one of popular and most visited protected wildlife areas in Tanzania. It is located in the North part of the country. The conservation area is famed by the Ngorongoro crater, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the 7 African natural wonders.

It is the largest unbroken, unfilled and unspoiled volcanic caldera in the whole world and home to over 25,000 animals inhabiting a space spanning only 260 square kilometers and over 500 varied species of birds. All these together with beautiful lush green scenic landscapes provide excellent Tanzania safari experiences.

Ngorongoro Meaning – Definition in Maasai Language

In a herd of cows, there is always a leader cow around whose neck the Maasai warriors put a bell. This would help tell them when cows are coming towards them. In whichever direction their herd is and also the speed at which they are moving while out grazing.

Each time the cow moves, the jingle bell around its neck makes a sound. That goes like “ngor ngor”, so the Maasai people called the area “ngor ngor”. Because of the echoes that bounced back from the hills. Each time the bell around the cows’ neck made a sound. Making it sound like there was another cow on the opposite side of the hill.

The name was later modified to Ngorongoro after the coming of the Europeans. To the now world famous Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Named after the world’s largest volcanic caldera, Ngorongoro Crater.
