Ngorongoro Crater, 1 Day Trip Safari Tanzania is a full-day wildlife safari from Arusha to the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater, also known as Africa’s Garden of Eden. The crater is located 180 km west of Arusha town.
A day trip safari to Ngorongoro Crater won’t disappoint as the wildlife game drives on the floor offer the easiest, best, and most rewarding game viewing in East Africa. The diverse habitats found on the fertile crater floor support a variety of wildlife, including elephants, monkeys, hyenas, jackals, and herds of zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, and other antelope species.
The Ngorongoro Crater hosts the Big Five of Africa, boasting one of the highest concentrations of lions in the world. Almost all of the wild animal species found on the savannahs of East Africa are represented in this compact crater. Ngorongoro Crater offers first-class game viewing and is considered one of the best places to capture the endangered black rhino on film.
It also serves as a sanctuary for the endangered black rhino, thanks to its steep walls, which form a natural barrier against potential poachers. The swamps on the floor of the crater are home to many hippos, which are breathtaking sites from the picnic spots.
Lake Magadi is a salt-pan, which attracts a large number of birds, the most spectacular being the flamingo. The crater rim, where the lodges and the tented camps are, stands at 7216 feet (2200 meters) above sea level, and 610 feet above the floor of the crater.
The floor of the crater, which is slightly oval in shape, is 278 square kilometers (100 square miles). The ever-changing weather patterns provide a dramatic backdrop to the scenery and wildlife.
