A nice early start then a drive pass the Rift Valley (Africa’s graben fault) up to the cooler regions of the crater uplands. The Ngorongoro Crater is almost 600m deep and in this massive caldera you will find an amazing variety of animals. Alongside the “big five” (elephants, buffalo, lions, leopards and rhinoceros) you will find virtually all of the animals that can be found on the entire east african savanna. At a chosen picnic spot you will have lunch and the rest of the afternoon will be devoted to more wildlife watching. Later on you will leave the crater and be driven to Ngorongoro Farm House for dinner and overnight. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner
Day 3 Ngorongoro Crater – Lake Manyara National Park – Moshi/Arusha
After breakfast you will continue on your “Northern Circuits” tour to the next National Park in Tanzania. Lake Manyara Park is one of the smaller parks in Tanzania. It covers an area from the north western edge and a large proportion of the lake itself. The lake is the seasonal home to thousands of flamingo, pelicans and more than one hundred other types of birds that also make this lake their home. On the partly forested edges you will find and get a chance to watch the proud elephants with their impressive tusks search for food and go about their daily business. You will also get to see giraffes, buffalo, gazelle, antilope, baboons, and last but not least the famous tree climbing lions.
