Today, you will be heading to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Some scientists argue that it’s the 8th wonder of the world.  However,this has not yet been established. You will be the judges! . On this day; you will leave with packed lunch and have your breakfast at around 0800 hrs. Ngorongoro is a Maasai word that means ‘Black Hole’ which actually symbolizes the crater formation that looks like a hole when viewed from above.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area covers an area of about 260 square kilometers. You will get to explore Africa’s ‘Garden of Eden’ in the comfort of your safari vehicle and spot the Big Five – the elephant, the buffalo, the leopard, the black mane lion and the rare black rhino. You will also be able to see hyenas, jackals, flamingos and the yawning hippos. You will then descend into the crater which is filled with both vegetation, forestry and animals. The crater was formed by volcanic activities in the past that caused the creation of a caldera. The caldera got deeper and bigger and has a depth of about 610 meters. You will also enjoy a delightful picnic lunch in the heart of this ancient volcanic crater close to the hippo pool after the game drive. You will then start heading towards the great Serengeti for your accommodation. This day might be a bit exhausting but it will all be worth it!

 In the evening, you will head back to Lion’s Paw for dinner and your overnight stay. Lion’s Paw offers a beautiful view of Lake Magadi and maximizes your experience in Ngorongoro. You will enjoy this amazing place for one last night before heading out to the great plains of the  Serengeti!
