Ngorongoro District Council
Ngorongoro District is one of the five districts of Arusha District in Tanzania. It is bordered on the north by Kenya, on the east by Mondoli district, on the south by the Karatu district, and on the west by the Mara district.
According to the 2002 national census of Tanzania, the population of Ngorongoro District was 129,776. [1] By 2012, the population of the district was 174,278.
Within the region are the Ngorongoro Crater and the active volcano Ol Duinyo Lengai. The area hosts parts of the wildebeest migration. While not part of the park, as such, much of the area falls within the same Serengeti-Mara ecosystem, which is defined by the annual wildlife migration limits.
The main ethnic group in the area are the Maasai people.
The district headquarters, including the district commissioner’s office, is located in the village of Loliondo.

The entire southern half of the area has been designated a Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) governed by the Ngorongoro Area Conservation Authority (NCAA). The protected area is the only one of its kind in Tanzania as all other protected areas in the country have been designated as game reserves and national parks.
The NCAA uniquely allows human habitation within the protected area, but places restrictions on land use in the NCA, including farming and livestock grazing. While cattle watering is permitted, human habitation and cattle grazing are prohibited in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ngorongoro Crater.
