After an early breakfast you will make your way into the Ngorongoro crater on a steep and narrow road. The slopes are forested but soon the landscape changes to savannah dotted with the occasional acacia tree. The wildlife here is absolutely breath-taking and if you are lucky you might spot the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard. The crater is also home to warthogs, wildebeests, zebras, hippos, hyenas and many more. After a morning full of game viewing and a picnic lunch you will leave the crater in the afternoon and head to Serengeti national park for overnight.

Some interest facts about crater

The Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest volcanic caldera, formed during the massive explosion of the volcano once higher than Kilimanjaro some 2 to 3 million years ago. The crater has the total area of 304 km², 600 m deep and the diameter of 20 km.

 Day 4 & 5: Serengeti National Park

Serengeti has really special sights, sound, and smell of Africa with stunning scenery, ever changing light and entertaining wildlife. In this park the animals don’t walk to any schedule so we may find lions, leopards, elephants, zebras, cheetahs, antelopes, gazelles, hippos and many species of birds and reptiles during our game drive. Here you might spend your day at the central park area or your guide knows the best place where to take you according to the season (migration of the animals).
