Day 2: Exploring the flourishing basin of Ngorongoro Crater

After an early breakfast, we take our picnic lunch aboard the vehicles and descend into the crater to explore this distinctive eco-system. Enjoy abundant wildlife viewing set against the impressive backdrop of the Ngorongoro Crater, the heart of this conservation area. These drives provide one of the best opportunities in Africa to view black rhino, which tends to spend their time on the crater floor.

Another big draw is the dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, and the small cats like the rare caracal, as well as the African wild cat which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. After a picnic lunch, another wildlife viewing drive will take you to visit the hippo pool near the Mandusi Swamp, Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner which is one of the main features of the crater, the lerai forest as well as other parts of the crater.
