Day 1: Arusha – Ngorongoro Crater
After breakfast at your hotel in Arusha, we depart by road and head to Ngorongoro Crater—one of the natural wonders of the world. A spectacular game haunt, the 102-square-mile crater is a perfect caldera, one of the largest on earth.
Millions of years ago a smoldering volcano collapsed, creating the crater and a home for thousands of animals amidst its many types of vegetation grown and nourished over the centuries. Over 30,000 animals live here: prides of lion, elephant, leopard, cheetah and giraffe, gazelle by the thousands and multitudes of wildebeest.
Arrive in time for lunch at your lodge located on the rim of the crater. The crater is at high altitude and can be cold, so be sure to pack a mixture of warm and light clothing. The rest of the afternoon is spent at the lodge enjoying activities available or visit a Masai Village (at an extra cost).
