Days 4 & 5: Ngorongoro Crater

Today, drive to Northern Tanzania to Ngorongoro Crater. This breathtaking destination offers more than just an incredible safari experience; it also boasts a fascinating natural history that makes it truly unique. About two and a half million years ago, it used to be a huge mountain similar in size to Mount Kilimanjaro –the highest peak in Africa-. When the volcano erupted, it collapsed on itself and the explosion resulted in the formation of what is now the largest intact volcanic caldera in the world, the Ngorongoro Crater.

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is teeming with wildlife with around 30,000 animals including cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, elephants, impalas and endangered black rhinos and black-maned lions. Check-in at the Ngorongoro Serena Lodge for a 2-night stay.
