You get to take amazing landscape photographs of the crater from above.

The crater is home to over 25,000 animals and a varied avian life.  On top of animals being more active in the morning hours, you will have the chance to spot all the Big 5 African animals that is the lion, buffalos, elephants, leopard and even the endangered black rhino among so many other animals.

Lake Ndutu surrounding areas/plains game drive

A game drive in this area offers you the chance of witnessing the beginning of the annual wildebeest migration. The calving season where hundreds of wildebeest calves are born happens in this area. This is in late February through to early March. Keep your cameras rolling to record the first steps of the newborn calves. As they are up and walking within the first 10 minutes after birth.

Serengeti plains game drive

The Ngorongoro vast grassland plains outside the crater merge with the Serengeti ecosystem. Game drives in the Serengeti plains offer you a chance to be an eye witness to millions of wildebeests…… Zebras and gazelles marching northwards in search of fresh grazing grounds during the great migration.

A guided safari walk on the crater rim can be a cherry on top of your adventurous game drive around the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
