The Castle at Ngorongoro is located along the edge of the Ngorongoro Forest a short drive from the nearby town of Karatu (20 mins drive).

How to get there

Travelling from Arusha town towards the entrance to Ngorongoro Crater:

Before the town of Karatu take the main dirt track/moram road to the right towards the forest. Follow this road for 5km until it meets the forest edge and take the right turn (the road runs out here so you may only go right). This track follows the edge of the forest. Stay left along this track, alongside the edge of the forest, and proceed for another 2 ½ km. Follow the road signs for The Castle up to the top of the hill until you meet a large steel gate. This is the entrance to The Castle.
