A day trip safari to Ngorongoro Crater won’t disappoint as the wildlife game drives on the floor offer the easiest, best and most rewarding game viewing in East Africa.
Ngorongoro has a high concentration of game and includes lion, elephant, wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, hyena and buffalo. All are fairly easy to spot and can be found just lying on the roads.
Ngorongoro Crater also serves as a sanctuary for the endangered black rhino, thanks to its steep walls, which form a natural barrier against potential poachers.
The swamps on the floor of the crater are home to many hippo, which are a breathtaking site from the picnic spots.
Lake Magadi is a saltpan, which attracts a large number of birds, the most spectacular being the flamingo.
The crater rim, where the lodges and the tented camps are, stands at 7216 feet (2200 meters) above sea level, and 610 feet above the floor of the crater.
The floor of the crater, which is slightly oval in shape, is 278 square kilometers (100 square miles).
The ever-changing weather patterns provide a dramatic backdrop to the scenery and wildlife.
Ngorongoro Crater 1 Day Trip Safari Tanzania
You’ll depart from Arusha at the crack of dawn for the long but scenic drive to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Along the way, you’ll pass bustling Maasai villages and sweeping plains dotted with acacia and the occasional giraffe or wildebeest.
Upon arrival at the park, you’ll sign in and then begin the winding descent into the caldera. The mist shrouded rainforests of the mountain are home to cape buffalo and baboon troupes, and the particularly lucky might even spot a grazing elephant or a shy leopard moving through the dense green undergrowth.
You’ll stop at the Ngorongoro viewing area for a stunning view of the caldera’s sheer scale. The shadows of clouds dapple the caldera floor, and the keen-eyed might spot the great herds of wildebeest and zebra moving about below. The sun glitters off the soda lakes and it all combines to make for a truly beautiful landscape.
From here you’ll continue our descent into the caldera, where over 120 species of mammals go about their lives. The park is the best place in the northern circuit to see the black rhinoceros and the cape buffalo, but is home to the entirety of the Big Five. We’ll also see large packs of hyenas as well as lesser known predators such as jackals and serval cats.
You’ll pay a visit to Lake Magadi, a vast salt lake which is a magnet for flamingoes and a number of other water birds such as pelicans and storks. A picnic lunch by the famous hippo pool is also a surreal experience, as you’ll take your lunch a few feet from where great hippopotamus wallow lazily in the cool water,
Across five hours, you’ll see the very best that Africa has to offer. In the late afternoon, with heads full of amazing memories, you’ll return to Arusha.
