Meet a driver at your Arusha City hotel for a 6am departure, then enjoy views of the Tanzania countryside on the 3-hour drive to Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
Upon arrival in the park, begin the first game drive of the day, with an expert safari guide to help you spot some of the animals that thrive within the crater walls. The Ngorongoro Crater has Africa’s highest density of mammal predators and the world’s highest-known density of lions, so it's an ideal destination for spotting some of Tanzania’s most thrilling game.
Watch for Ngorongoro’s rare inhabitants as well—endangered black rhinos, golden cats, and wild hunting dogs can be found in the arid savanna—and if you’re visiting Ngorongoro during the flamingo migration, you may see the bottom of the crater tinted bright pink by thousands of lesser flamingos.
Pause for a picnic lunch inside the park, then keep exploring into the afternoon, as the wildlife and landscape changes throughout the day. At roughly 3pm begin the 3-hour trip back to Arusha City, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
