In the morning you’ll be picked up at 6:00am from your hotel and driven to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. It’s about a three hour drive and on arrival at Ngorongoro we’ll descend straight into the crater for game viewing.

You will stop for a packed lunch supplied by us in the middle of the day and then enjoy more game viewing in the afternoon until around 3:30pm when you’ll be taken back to Arusha.

Ngorongoro Crater is accessible throughout the year and is about 190km from Arusha or a three hour drive.

The main feature of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is the Crater, a large unbroken, unflooded volcanic caldera. The Crater, which formed when a giant volcano exploded and collapsed on itself some two to three million years ago, it is 610m (2,000 ft.) deep and its floor covers 260 km². Estimates of the height of the original volcano range from 15,000 to 19,000 feet (4,500 to 5,800m) high. The crater is famous for its big five animals: lion, elephant, rhino, leopard, and buffalo. It is teeming with wildlife of all kinds however, including zebra, gazelle, wildebeest, impala, hippo and many different bird species.
