After breakfast we descend with a picnic lunch through the early morning mists and 2,000 feet into the crater. Ngorongoro Crater is the World’s largest intact volcanic caldera. Due to its size and diversity, the crater floor is comprised of several distinct areas, ranging from forest, swamps, lakes and springs, to open grassland and some sandy dunes. It’s an awesome wildlife experience. Lunch is served near a small lake filled with hippos. We then continue game viewing before returning to the crater’s rim and your lodge.

Morning depart down the rim of the crater into the Ngorongoro conservation zone. Visit the Olduvai Gorge and Museum of Man for lunch.
