After breakfast drive to Ngorongoro Crater floor for game drive, lunch at hippo pool picnic site. Ascend to the rim for overnight at Simba Campsite. Lunch, dinner, breakfast included.

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area covers an area of 8,300 km2, with a deep volcanic crater at its centre, the largest unbroken caldera in the world. The crater is undoubtedly the ‘jewel in the crown’ - an area that is about 300 km2 in area, 600 meters deep, and 20 km wide. The rim of the crater is an astounding 2,286 meters above sea level. The floor contains a small soda lake and it is estimated that around 30,000 animals live in the crater, making it the most intensive safari wildlife viewing area on earth.

Day 4: Empakaai Crater- Nayobi Village

Empakaai Crater to Nayobi Village (4-5 hours walking). It’s worth getting up very early so you don`t miss the beautiful panoramic sunrise above the lake in Empakaai Crater.

After this break, trek to our Special Campsite under the acacia trees. Dinner, breakfast, lunch included.
