DSC09234Day 2: Lake Manyara – Ngorongoro Crater (Half day) – Departure

Depart Lake Manyara for Ngorongoro crater with packed lunch, descend into the crater floor for an extensive tour of this natural zoo where animal drama never ends and herds of Rhino, Buffalo and elephants roam freely. For Conservation purposes, you can only do a half day tour inside the crater.

In the afternoon ascend the crater and drive to Arusha arriving in the evening.

Ngorongoro Crater is a special place in that it is a Conservation Area, not a National Park; this means that the whole area is managed for both the animals and the local Masai people who graze their cattle alongside the indigenous wildlife. During the drive in Ngorongoro we have a chance to glimpse something of the Masai way of life. After stopping at the entrance gate, where there is a chance to learn more about this fascinating volcanic landscape, we will drive around the rim of the Crater itself, and from here we can look down and see the herd of wildebeest or buffalos. Finally we descend into the crater. The crater walls provide a natural sanctuary for the animals, which means there is plenty to see: lions, elephants, buffalo, rhino and leopard (if you are lucky). The only animal you won’t see in here is a giraffe, whose long legs are unable to cope with the steeps sides of the crater.

In the afternoon ascend the crater and drive to Arusha arriving in the evening.

End of safari.
