Day 04:KARATU_NGORONGORO CRATER TOUR
Early morning breakfast and drive to the Crater floor with lunch boxes for a full day Crater tour. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) was established in 1959, most of it having previously belonged to the now contiguous Serengeti National Park. Many natural attractions that are contained within its vast boundaries (8,300 sq km), these include both dormant and active volcanoes, soaring mountains, archaeological treasures, rolling plains, rivers, forests, lakes and shifting sand dunes whilst almost half of the NCA is made up of vast tracts of open grassland, which swing in a vast arc stretching from the Serengeti in the northwest through the Gol Mountains to the Sales Plain in the northeast. Close to the centre of the NCA is Olduvai Gorge, the ‘Cradle of Mankind’, where the remains of our earliest ancestors, the hominids, were found. From Olduvai.
Dinner and overnight at Ngorongoro Farm House. (L,D,B)
