Your day 3 of the 6 days safari in Tanzania tour starts with an early morning breakfast at the lodge. At around sunrise, embark on a morning game drive and follow that up later on with an afternoon game drive, as the animals tend to be more active in the cooler hours of the day.

You’ll arrive at your lodge in time for lunch, after which you descend 2000 feet to the crater floor. On the way into the crater, learn some cool facts about this incredible natural geological wonderland. Formed by a massive volcanic eruption, this world’s largest unbroken volcanic caldera (264km2), offers a year-round home to an astonishing 25,000 large mammals, including rare black rhinos, wildebeests, and zebras along with some of Africa’s densest concentrations of lions.

The Ngorongoro Crater sometimes referred to as “the eighth wonder of the world”, is best known for its natural beauty and abundance of diverse wildlife. Most of the animals are very relaxed in the presence of humans and vehicles, and the cloud-draped crater walls make for dramatic pictures and memories.

While a major attraction is of course the mammals, birding within the crater and on the top of the crater rim is very good and you have an opportunity to tick off a good number of special species such as Common Ostrich, Secretarybird, Kori Bustard, Grey Crowned Crane, Golden-winged Sunbirds, etc.

After a game drive, drive up the steep road out of the crater and embark on a 4-5 hour drive back to Arusha and Kilimanjaro International Airport for drop-off at the end of this fantastic 6 days safari in Tanzania tour.
