  • Driving in the parks is allowed between 6 am and 6 pm only.
  • The speed limit in the parks is 50km/h and 25km/h in the Ngorongoro Crater.
  • Animals always have the right of way.
  • Never feed animals. It will upset their diet and lead to an unnecessary dependence on people.
  • Keep to the authorized tracks only.
  • Do not pick, cut or destroy any vegetation or remove any object of biological interest,including eggs, bones and trophies.
  • Camping is allowed only in designated sites.
  • Picnicking is allowed only at designated sites.
  • Do not disturb or harass the wildlife in any way. Radios and music players are forbidden.
  • Please do not imitate animal’s sounds, clap or pound on vehicle or hoot. Do not throw objects to attract animal’s attention.
  • Do not litter. Keep your waste in the vehicle until it can be properly disposed later at your lodge or camp. Litter can choke or poison animals and birds.
  • Do not smoke while on game drive and always dispose cigarettes carefully. A burning cigarette can start a wild fire that would cause damage to vegetation and suffering to wildlife
    and people.
  • Do not light or cause fire to be lit. If camping, be sure to extinguish your fire carefully.
  • All visitors must remain in their vehicle within 200 meters of any game animal. Leaving the
    vehicle in the parks is forbidden except in designated places.
  • Discourage your driver from approaching the animals too close (25 meters). Lions, cheetahs
    and leopards are especially nervous; a vehicle can hinder their hunting or make them leave a
    hard earned meal. Your driver may be banned from the area and/or lose his job.
  • Domestic pets are forbidden in the parks.
  • Ngorongoro Crater: You are required to hire a TANAPA guide before descending into the
    Crater. The guide fees are approximately $20 which can be paid in cash.
  • It’s is not allowed to use/operate drones in any park.
  • Leave the park undisturbed by not leaving or removing anything, animate or inanimate

Our eco-system depends on a very delicate balance
The less we disturb it the longer we can enjoy it.
