This 2 Day Safari takes you to the Ngorongoro Crater, known as the world’s largest unbroken caldera. The deep Volcanic Crater, about 20 kilometers across, 600 meters deep, and covering 300 square kilometers, is the crown jewel of the Ngorongoro National Park.
Watering holes dot the Crater floor, which shelters nearly 30,000 animals in an area naturally enclosed by the volcano’s walls. This is the only park in Africa where you can see the Black Rhino, as well as Buffalo, Cheetah, Lion, Hyena, Hippo, Zebras, Elephants, Wildebeest, and many other African game animals while on your Tanzania safari holiday.

In this tour we will cover the 2 most popular destinations in Tanzania – Tarangire National Park (1 night) and Ngorongoro Crater. Tour starts and ends at Arusha. With our experienced driver guides, it will be a trip of a lifetime!
Pick up at 8:30 AM from your hotel in Arusha and depart for Tarangire National Park with a picnic lunch for a full day game drive. Tanzania’s third largest National park is known for its majestic baobab trees that dot the landscape, dwarfing the animals that feed beneath them. The Tarangire River is the centerpiece of this park which is famous for some of the largest herds of elephants in Africa. Here you may see lion, leopard, cheetah, lesser kudu, buffalo, Oryx, eland, giraffe and zebra. Post the game drive, you will head back to your camp/lodge where a delicious dinner awaits you.
On the last day of your safari, you will have an early start. Finishing up with a quick breakfast you will make an early descent at around 6:30 AM into the crater floor. The Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest inactive, intact and unfilled volcanic caldera. It has a massive floor of about 260 sq kms with a depth of over 2000 feet. The 5-hour game drive on the crater floor will show you a lot of animal action. Keeping the camera ready is definitely recommended.
The African elephant, buffalo, Black rhino, Hippos, Hyenas, Cheetahs and Lions are found in plenty. Post the picnic lunch at the beautiful Hippo pool, you will begin a steep ascend to the top exit of the crater. This is the last leg of your safari, with a 4hr drive left to Arusha. You will be dropped off to your preferred location in Arusha by 6:00 PM in the evening.
With an incredible experience and loads of memories to cherish, this is the time you bid goodbye to your team.
