The Ngorongoro Crater has a diverse ecological system that includes lions, leopards, elephants, cheetahs, buffaloes, zebras, wildebeest, elands, gazelles, giraffe, zebras, monkeys, baboons, hippos, rhinos, and antelopes. There are migrant birds from Europe, Asia, and African birds such as vultures, storks, and flamingos. The majority of the plantation can be described as luscious and green but there are species of desert plants. The probability of what species you are likely to see all depends on the time of year and the migration of the herds.

Day 3
Ngorongoro Crater 7 hours game drive | Transfer to Arusha

We will have an early morning departure from camp to ensure that we arrive at the Ngorongoro Crater descend gate promptly. We will descend into the crater as our game drive with a picnic lunch is inside the crater. The Ngorongoro Crater is an immense, unbroken caldera that was formed when a volcano erupted millions of years ago. The elevated structure encourages the animals to subside within the crater which means there is a high possibility of spotting every member of ‘The Big 5’. The powerful group comprises buffalo, lions, rhinos, elephants. You can expect to see other wildlife including zebra, hippos, wildebeest, and hyenas. The flamingos will lounge gracefully on the banks of Soda Lake whilst the vultures can be found scavenging for the discarded prey of a predator. Your trip will come to an end in the late afternoon and we will proceed to Arusha town. Accommodation before and after your Safari in Arusha can be arranged on request
