Day 1: Arusha Tanzania-Ngorongoro Crater
Our 1-day Safari to Ngorongoro Crater is designed to offer visitors who are short on time a taste of an African safari. Do you have a free day in your holiday, maybe before or after a Kilimanjaro trekking adventure? Or are you perhaps waiting for a flight to your next destination? Join us for a brief but unforgettable African wildlife safari experience in one of Tanzania’s most famous parks.
Meet our professional tour guide/driver in Arusha town, who will deliver a short safari info briefing over breakfast. Afterwards, travel with your guide to the famous Ngorongoro Crater where you will descend 600m into this magnificent crater for a full-day game drive.
The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most densely crowded African wildlife areas in the world and is home to an estimated 30,000 animals including some of Tanzania’s last remaining black rhino. Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park 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 the dense population of predators such as lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which often requires a trained eye to spot.
We will stop and enjoy a picnic lunch in the crater and then proceed with the game drive until late evening. Our African safari adventure will end back in Arusha town.
