Tanzania Sharing/Private Safari Ngorongoro with AFRICA NATURAL TOURS
Phenomenal landscapes, rich wildlife in abundance: these are the characteristics of a day-trip which will prove unforgettable. Ngorongoro is a special place. ‘Africa’s Garden of Eden’ is a volcanic crater full of wildlife, a UNESCO World Heritage Site worthy of the name. Animals are present all year-round, making this a destination not to miss. Lions, cheetah, leopard, black rhino, baboons, hippo, elephant … the list here is endless. A day-trip to Ngorongoro will live long in the memory.
After an early morning breakfast in your hotel, we will come to pick you and we will start travel from Arusha to Ngorongoro Crater, as it is the best time to spot animals. What should you expect on this day? On this day, we will enjoy a game drive around the crater and stop for a picnic lunch at a small lake within the park. The lake is home to many hippos and migratory birds, so guests will be sure to enjoy the spectacular visit!! Due to the animal “oasis” created within the crater, there is a high possibility of spotting every member of ‘The Big 5’. The group comprises some of the strongest animals in Africa – the ferocious lion, the giant elephant, the stealthy leopard, the charging rhino and the mighty water buffalo. Ngorongoro Crater is truly an amazing place. Did you know it was formed over two million of years ago? A large volcano erupted, collapsing the volcano, but left a perfectly unbroken crater, known as a caldera. Within the amazing crater you can expect to view the playful zebra, lumbering(busy) hippo, swift wildebeest and cackling hyenas. In addition, there are flocks of graceful and attractive flamingos along the Soda Lake, while hungry hawks and vultures circle the sky in search their next meal of discarded carcass. Beautiful storks, ibis, and cranes are popular water birds in the crater, a sight not to miss. After a lovely afternoon of animal sightings, we will finally start our journey back to Arusha.
