Depart in the morning from the camp with picnic lunch, drive to Ngorongoro Conservation area for crater tour. it’s time to drive to the scenic Ngorongoro Crater enjoying wildlife viewing along the way, on arrival descends into the crater for a full day of game viewing. A picnic lunch will be taken on the crater floor. The crater supports up to 25,000 large mammals. Grazers dominate: zebra, wildebeest – accounting for almost half the animals – gazelle, buffalo, eland, hartebeest and wart hog. Giraffe, for example, stay away because there is insufficient food at tree level; top because they compete directly with wildebeest.
An odd feature of the crater elephants is that they are almost exclusively bulls. Breeding herds – comprising large numbers of females and young with a few attendant older males – are probably unable to find sufficient quality food in the crater. Ngorongoro has carnivores in quantity, drawn by the large herds of prey animals. It has the densest population of large predators, mainly lion – about 100 – and more than 400 spotted hyenas, living in eight clans of up to eighty individuals. Both lions and hyenas will scavenge from each other, depending on weight of numbers and of course, hunger.
After your game drive in the crater, you will drive back to Arusha for dinner and overnight. Depending on your flight schedule, you will either be transferred to a hotel in Arusha or to the airport for transfer either to Zanzibar wherever your ticket is booked.
