Today we will pick you up from your accommodation in Moshi. Our professional safari guide will take you to a true highlight of Tanzania’s national parks. As soon as you reach the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater, you will see the giant caldera below to enjoy a breathtaking view.

Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro is a crater in Tanzania on the edge of the Serengeti. It was formed when a volcano collapsed at this point. The crater floor is at about 1700 m and the side walls are between 400 and 600 meters high, so that the crater rim is at 2300 m. The diameter of the crater is about 20 kilometers.

An estimated 25.000 wild animals populate the crater. It also offers the highest density of predators in Africa. The number of zebras, buffaloes, wildebeests, antelopes and gazelles is particularly large. They are hunted by lions, hyenas and leopards. There are also elephants in the crater and, unusually in this area, hippos. Between 10 and 15 endangered black rhinos remain. The great herd migration in the Serengeti also passes through the Ngorongoro Crater.

Travel time from Moshi: 4-5 hours

Crater Rim Walk (optional)

Today, before sunrise, we set out on foot along the rim of the crater. Together with our guide we hike for some time until the Ngorongoro Crater is in front of us at sunrise. We can watch the animals as they migrate over the crater rim towards the waterholes in the crater at daybreak. You can’t get any closer to nature in Tanzania than on this hike through the wilderness.

After breakfast we descend 600m into this magnificent crater for a half-day game drive. Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its huge population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard. Around noon time we will drive back towards Arusha. The tour ends in Arusha or at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) for your departure.

Absolutely yes. We will arrange all airport transfers for you from and to the airport so that you don’t have to worry about how to get to your hotel. One of our drivers or guides will come to pick you up and take you back to the airport. This is already included in our offers and services.

A private departure can be arranged at any time according to your individual travel dates for highest flexibility. A group departure has a planned schedule on a specific date and let you share some costs while travelling. So if you are on a budget and want to meet friends from all over the world you can join one of our groups.

Absolutely yes. Our handpicked hotels all offer you to safely store your luggage during your climb. In this way you can leave all gear that you won’t need during your climb at the hotel. That is very convenient if you are planning to go on a safari or to Zanzibar after your hike.
