Days 5 & 6 - Ngorongoro Conservation Area & Crater

An early morning start in the Serengeti to try and find cats before they retreat from the blazing sun during the day.

At approximately 20 kilometers across and 600 meters deep, the Ngorongoro Crater is a breath-taking natural wonder. Ngorongoro Crater is unique in that almost all the wildlife lives within the crater walls; hence you have the opportunity to find the game easily. You’ll want to wake early to make the most of your day exploring the crater, where rhino, in particular, can be seen regularly, as well as the pride of lion and other predators like the cheetah.
