Day 1: Arusha – Drive to Ngorongoro Crater
Depart Arusha 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.
Uniquely beautiful, we spend a memorable morning ensconced in the crater, exploring its breadth and depth. And tonight, as we delight in luscious meal at this exceptional lodge, we are once again stunned by the beauty of the orange sunset that hovers in the wild African sky, signaling the end to yet another unforgettable day on safari.
Day 2: Ngorongoro – Drive to Arusha
Early after breakfast you will have a full day game drive at the crater with picnic lunch boxes. Late in the afternoon you will drive back to Arusha.
