NgorongoroDay Trip Overview

Ngorongoro has the most beautiful views from the above but the real magic happens when you get down inside and drive among an unparalleled concentration of wildlife, including the highest density of lions and overall predators in Africa. This is one of the Africa’s premier attractions and world-renowned natural wonder is deservedly a Unesco World Heritage site.

It’s steep, unbroken walls provide the setting for an incredible natural drama as prey and predators graze and stalk their way around the open grasslands, swamps and acacia woodland on the crater floor. It’s such an impressive sight that, other vehicles aside; you’ll wonder whether you have descended into a wildlife paradise.

There are plenty of hippos around the picnic site and Lake Magadi attracts flocks of flamingo to its shallows in the rainy season. You can also find around 250-300 Elephants in the crater. The other predators include around 600 spotted hyenas, 60 Lions and golden, black-bucked jackals.

The predators are sustained by a large number of resident herbivores with, wildebeests, zebras, and buffaloes. The reason for abundance of animals is the presence of water from both the permanent springs that sustain the swamps and the permanent streams and rivers fed by run-off from the certain rim forests.


You will take early morning breakfast you will drive to Ngorongoro Crater for game drive. It’s about 4-hrs drive from Arusha & Moshi Town.

The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most densely crowded African wildlife areas in the world and is home to an estimated 30,000 animals including some of Tanzania’s last remaining black rhino.

Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the crater 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. We will enjoy a picnic lunch on the crater floor.

We’ll drive you home to Moshi to arrive in the cool of the evening.
