DAY 5: SERENGETI TO NGORONGORO CRATER
An early game drive seeking predators who like to hunt in the early morning and if we are lucky enough we can see the killings.

After lunch and some rest at your lodge, we will change the venue and start an African walking safari at the Northern Crater Rim of Ngorongoro Crater inhabited by buffaloes, elephants, baboons, monkeys, and different species of birds. The walking safari will be done by visitors and an armed ranger you follow animal paths through dense bush. Dinner and overnight at the lodge in the Ngorongoro conservation area.
DAY 6: NGORONGORO CRATER
After breakfast you will descend into the crater for a wonderful game drive (with a picnic lunch) inside the Ngorongoro Crater described as one of the 8th wonders of the world. It is the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera and a natural sanctuary for some of Africa’s densest animal populations. It is one of the few places where the rare African black rhino can be observed in its natural setting. As very few animals migrate in and out of the crater with its 2000 ft. high walls, you can expect to see lions, elephants, zebras, hippos, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes, many birds, and other species. With a bit of luck, the ‘Big Five’ can be spotted during one game drive only. Dinner and overnight at the lodge in Ngorongoro or at a lodge at Karatu.
