NGORONGORO CRATER BIRDING DAY TOUR
Our Ngorongoro Crater Birding Day Tour visits this beautiful location, West from the town of Arusha, in Northern Tanzania. We shall leave early to have enough time in the crater.
We shall soon arrive at the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, enjoying some highland forest species on the way in. We shall enjoy views of the mighty Ngorongoro Crater from the rim, and spend some time birding there too.
This is a large and scenic crater located at about 2000m above sea level. This crater is about 600m deep and has an amazing view both from the top and inside the crater. The crater is nestled in a pristine natural forest, full of beautiful indigenous trees.
We shall descend the majestic Ngorongoro Crater. The crater is known as one of the wonders of Africa. Descending down the crater floor takes you through great scenery and you get to experience the local Euphorbia tree varieties. Herds of wild animals are plenty inside the crater as well as wonderful views of the crater walls.
We shall then head back to our lodge, marking the end to our lovely Ngorongoro Crater Birding Day Tour.
