My dream trip

DAY 1:ARUSHA/NGORONGORO CRATER

Early breakfast at 5:30Am before you drive to the Ngorongoro crater for a full day game drive in the crater floor.  You will spend a fully day exploring the crater floor.  The area is world-renowned in its reputation and very small in its scale, so you will see other safari goers. Don’t let that distract you from the beauty of the place or from the fact that this remains one of the only places on earth where you may see all of the Big Five at once: Lion, Leopard, Bull Elephant, African Buffalo and Black Rhino.  To maximize your time on the crater floor you will enjoy a special boxed lunch at a scenic picnic spot.(By the Hippo pool).

Your journey will take you throughout this tremendous landscape that is constantly changing as animals move to and fro in search of pasture, water or east prey. More game drive to sunset whereby you will descend to the rime of the crater for dinner and overnight .The Ngorongoro crater is well known as the Garden of Eden (8world wonder).Dinner and overnight at your Lodge/campsite where you will have time to discuss the multitude of sightings today and log them in your safari journal.
