Is a breath taking natural wonder, featuring one of the highest concentrations of wildlife in Africa and offering some of the easiest and most rewarding game viewing in Tanzania. Few safari destinations deliver the same experience as the Ngorongoro Crater – it will not disappoint you! Due the long travel time and distance from Arusha town to the crater and back we strongly recommend this trip as a 2 day / 1 night safari instead
Arusha – Ngorongoro Crater – Arusha
Travel time: 4 hours – 4 hours
Distance: 160 km – 160km
Pick up from Arusha town at approximately 7:00am and we depart to the Ngorongoro Conservation area. We will descend over 600 meters into the Ngorongoro crater for a 4 hours game drive with picnic lunch. Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro Crater supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park, is its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot.
We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually been seen here. Midafternoon we depart for Arusha where we will end our safari adventure. Expected arrival time to Arusha town will be around 19:00pm.
