Ngorongoro Conservation Area is in northern Tanzania, It’s home to the vast, volcanic Ngorongoro Crater and “big 5” game (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino). Huge herds of wildebeests and zebras traverse its plains during their annual migration. Livestock belonging to the semi-nomadic Maasai tribe graze alongside wild animals. Hominin fossils found in the Olduvai Gorge date back millions of years.
Start and end in Arusha! With the day tour – Day tour Ngorongoro Crater, you have a day trip package taking you through Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. Day Trip to Ngorongoro Crater Departs daily on request.
After breakfast you will be met by your safari guide expart and set out for glorious Ngorongoro Crate (approx 2 hours 30 minutes) . Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest unfolded caldera – a feature formed by the collapse of land following a volcanic eruption. It is approximately 18Km in diameter and the home to an estimated 25000 mammals.
The caldera is truly amazing but it is only when you have reached the crater floor and had a chance to look all around you, do realise just how breathtaking it is. Here in a relatively small area (in African terms) you find practically the complete cross section of East African wildlife.
Alongside Elephants, Zebras, Wildebeest and Buffalo you will find an array of Antelopes, Gazelles, Hippopotami, Warthogs, and hyena. There is also a very good chance that you will also see leopards, lions and the black rhino. The black rhino is unfortunately threatened with extinction.
After picnic lunch, there will be more time for wildlife spotting before it’s time to leave the Ngorongoro Crater and return to Arusha town.
