About this trip

As operators of the most invigorating and rustic trekking safaris in  Tanzania, we pioneered our crater highlands treks from the plains of  Ngorongoro to the shores of the lake in Empakai Crater, down the Great  Rift Valley wall to spectacular Lake Natron, where a swim in the cool  waterfall pools awaits you. These treks get you close to nature and  allow you the chance to get an authentic taste of the local culture as  you trek with Maasai guides and your belongings are transported on pack  animals in the traditional way-just as tribesman have done for  centuries. You will hike through grassy plains and the mountainous  countryside as well as thick mountain forest and the savannah landscape  of the Rift Valley.

Day 1
Arusha – Olmoti Crater – Nainokanoka

In the morning you will be picked up from your hotel and after the  luggage has been stowed in the vehicle, the journey will begin on a good  tar road. Approaching the village of Mto wa Mbu, you can see the  escarpment of the Great Rift Valley rising ahead. A short drive further,  you reach the gate of the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area.  Continues with fantastic views along the crater road, until you reach  the Masai village of Nainokanoka with a nearby campsite. The camp will  be set up and you will climb the rim of Olmoti Crater during the  afternoon. The reward of the climb is the great view that you get from  the top of the crater edge. There is also a possibility to visit a small  waterfall along the way. Dinner will be served at the camp. The night  at 2650m height might be damply and cold, depending on the time of year.
