DAY 4 FROM SERENGETI TO NGORONGORO CRATER

Early in the morning you will do a game drive towards Ngorongoro Crater; this is largest unbroken caldera in the world, The Ngorongoro crater which is known as hole of God. This protected area stretches from Lake Natron (the breeding ground for East Africa’s flamingos) in the Northeast, to Lake Eyasi in the South, and Lake Manyara to the East). Olduvai Gorge and the Ngorongoro Crater, has been described as one of the great natural wonders of the world. Eight million years ago, the Ngorongoro Crater was an active volcano but its cone collapsed, forming the crater that is 610 meters deep, 20 kilometers in diameter, and covers an area of 250 km2.

The crater is home to many species of wild animals and birds. With the exception of impala and topi due to competition with the wildebeest and the giraffe because there is not much to eat at tree level, almost every species of African plains mammal lives in the crater, including the endangered black rhino, and the densest population of predators in Africa. A strange thing is that the crater elephants are mainly bulls. The birdlife, which includes the flamingo, is mainly seasonal, and is also affected by the ratio of soda to fresh water in Lake Magadi on the crater floor.

You might see interaction of wild animals and local people (Maasai) are permitted to water their cattle at the permanent lake and can be seen leading their animals in and out of the crater. The area is accessible all over the year especially during dry season. You will drive out of the crater to Tarangire direct to the lodge for dinner and overnight.

During the dry season from June to October, the park has a particularly high concentration of wildlife, as prey comes to search for water and pasture along the mighty Tarangire River and predator follow them for hunting hence will be easy to see different animals which are coming from their hiding places from bushes, you will enjoy the predator hunting, good view and photo taking.
