The Ngorongoro Crater, located at 2,200 meters above sea level, is the largest uninterrupted caldera in the world and one of Africa’s natural wonders, with some 30,000 large mammals living there all year round, such as buffaloes, lions, elephants, cheetahs and rhinoceroses, as well as many bird species, such as flamingos, eagles, buzzards, ostriches and hawks.

Permits for game drives inside the Crater are valid for up to 6 hours.

Lake Magadi sits in the centre of the crater, with shallow waters that tend to dry up during the dry season, and is the best spot from which to observe flocks of flamingos and crowned cranes, as well as a large number of herbivores, especially great numbers of wildebeests and zebras, who drink here, attracting the presence of lions and hyenas.

We leave early in the morning for the park and return to the camp at about 6:30 pm.

Its boundless prairies are occasionally interrupted by bizarre granite formations – kopjes, in whose cracks often form small pools of rainwater, attracting several small animals, including large predators such as lions who love to lay in them or hide in wait of a possible prey.

The rivers provide a habitat for crocodiles, hippos and many other water animals, as well as leopards, which often bask in the branches of the umbrella acacia found here.
We will leave for the park early in the morning and return to the lodge by 18:00.
