What to expect

For all our Tanzania safari we mostly use 4WD Land cruiser, leave your lodge in Arusha after breakfast at 7.00 & drive for about 3 to 3:30 hours on a nice tarmac road all the way to Ngorongoro gate. After registration and other park formality you will enter the Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority (NCAA) and drive up and around the crater rim, stop at the view point of the Crater floor drive around and descent into the crater floor for a wonderful game drive (Picnic lunch will be served at the crater floor.

Ngorongoro Crater is regarded by many as the 8th wonders of the world. Its crater wall is of about 600 meter and it has a floor about 300 square kilometers, the crater floor has a big number of resident animals with exception of few that migrates in and out of the crater like wildebeest and zebra. Ngorongoro crater is among few areas in the World where black rhino are leaving in their natural habitat. You may expect to spot from hippos, zebra, wildebeest, topi, buffalo, elephant, lion, cheetah,  leopard, hyenas and other species.

Bird life is rich in the Crater floor for both aquatic and forest birds, you may spot Egyptian geese, ibises, flamingos, black smith plovers, wavers, herons and other species. With a bit of lucky the Tanzanian Big Five can be spotted in the Crater during a one day of game drives. Drive back to Arusha and arrive at late afternoon.
