Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Safari Highlights

Today, we will depart our lodge early, using the nearby access road to descend quickly into the Ngorongoro Crater valley floor some 600m (200ft) below.

Ngorongoro Crater supports the densest concentration of predators in all of Africa, and is an excellent spot to look for some of the continent’s largest old elephant bulls – the natural sanctuary provided by the surrounding crater walls means it is home to some of the longest tusks you will see on safari in Africa. Ngorongoro is also renowned for its population of black rhinos, and sightings are reasonably reliable – a poignant rarity in East Africa these days. It is also an excellent spot for birdwatchers – with large flocks of flamingo and other water birds usually resident or passing through, as well as a significant number of birds of prey.

We return to our lodge for lunch, with the afternoon at leisure.
