Non game-viewing travel time: 3 hours
Distance: 270 km
Pick up from Arusha or Kilimanjaro International Airport and transfer to the Ngorongoro Conservation area. We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge and after lunch, we will descend over 600 meters into the crater to view wildlife for an afternoon
Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park, is its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the south western corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually been seen here.
