After breakfast you will descend into the crater for a wonderful game drive (with a picnic lunch) inside the Ngorongoro Crater, which is often described as one of the wonders of the world. It is the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera and a natural sanctuary for some of Africa’s densest animal populations. It is one of the few places in the world where the rare black rhino can be observed in their natural habitat. As very few animals migrate in and out of the crater with its 2000 foot high walls, you can expect to see lions, elephant, zebras, hippo, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes, many birds, and other species. With a bit of luck the ‘big five’ can be spotted during a single game drive! Overnight at Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge or Plantation Lodge in Karatu nearby. All meals are included.
