Day 2:Ngorongoro Crater Tour

After breakfast, board your vehicle at 0800 hrs and descend the down walls of the world’s largest
caldera with packed lunch for a half day of game and sightseeing on the crater floor.
This crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has global importance for biodiversity conservation due to the presence of globally threatened species, the density of wildlife inhabiting the area, and the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra, gazelles and other animals into the northern plains. Extensive archaeological research has also yielded a long sequence of evidence of human evolution and human-environment dynamics, including early hominid footprints dating back 3.6 million years.

Here you have a chance to spot Lions, Elephants, Buffalos, Hippos, Cheetahs, Hyenas and several antelope and birds’ species. Ascend to your lodge in the early afternoon for dinner and relaxation.
