2 Days 1 Night Ngorongoro Crater Tanzania Safari from the 2 Days 1 Night Tanzania Safaris is a short overnight wildlife holiday to Ngorongoro Crater – an extinct volcanic caldera in the Eastern Great Rift Valley, northern Tanzania.

Ngorongoro Crater lies 75 miles (120 km’s) west of the town of Arusha and the drive takes around 4 hours to the Crater.

With 600 metre high walls and a rich volcanic floor that plays host to the big five, the Ngorongoro is one of the continent’s most famous safari destinations.

Ngorongoro Crater is home to populations of Lion, Leopard and Hyena along with good herds of wildebeest, buffalo and zebra.

Other game in the 2 Days 1 Night Ngorongoro Crater Tanzania Safari  include serval cat, cheetah, jackal, Grant’s and Thompson’s gazelles along with approximately 400 species of bird.

Animals are free to leave or enter the crater but most of them stay because of the plentiful water and food available on the crater floor throughout the year.
