Africa's most beautiful regions, with volcanic craters forming stunning backdrops to some of
the richest grazing grounds in Africa.
The caldera of Ngorongoro marks the ancient walls of a collapsed volcano, which was probably once the size of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Today the completely enclosed circular crater is some twelve miles across, with steep walls of over 2,000 feet. We are at an altitude of approximately 7,500 feet above sea level, the highest point on our trip. After our time on the lower plains, the cooler air here is refreshing (please have a fleeze/jacket with you as it can get cold during early morning and evening hours).
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is home to the “big 5” game (elephant, lion, leopard,
buffalo, rhino).Livestock belonging to the semi-nomadic Maasai tribe graze alongside wild animals. This is the only area in Tanzania you will find Wildlife, Human Being and Domestic animals live in one place as a similar family. Wildlife and sightseeing is one among the most picturesque in this area, but also the Hominin fossils found in the Olduvai Gorge date back millions of years which was discovered by Dr. Mary Leakey worth a visit.

It is also an endemic bird area, with a total of 505 species being documented so far.
In the afternoon we will be heading to the central park area, known as the Seronera area,
one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides
a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species.

With its wide-open spaces, bright blue skies and creature-filled landscape, over the next three days we will discover why the fabled Serengeti typifies the dream of “Old Africa.” Large prides of lions laze in the long grasses; plentiful families of elephants feed on acacia bark and trumpet to each other across the plains, while giraffes, gazelles, monkeys, eland and the whole range of African wildlife present themselves in awe-inspiring numbers.
