Transiting through Ngorongoro to Serengeti


We shall be going from east i.e Lake Manyara/Karatu to Serengeti and back after 3 days. Both times, while going to Serengeti and returning from Serengeti the plan is to take B144 and skirt the Ngorongoro crater ( we are doing it another time) and NOT descend into the crater. Our understanding is that we WILL NOT have to pay Crater Service fee(250US) and NCAA entry fee per person – EITHER way.

Can someone please confirm.

    You are correct that you don’t need to pay the descent fee if you aren’t going down into the crater, but yes, you definitely will need to pay the per person fee of about $70 (including tax) each time you pass through the conservation area. B144 (as it is called on Google) goes right through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
