Karatu – Ngorongoro Crater & Serengeti National Park
This morning we depart early for the Ngorongoro Conservation area and head into the wildlife rich Ngorongoro Crater. It is the largest unbroken, unflooded caldera in the world. Comprising of open savannahs, acacia forests and both soda and fresh water lakes, it is truly a miniature “Garden of Eden”. This World Heritage Site boasts some of the best game viewing in Africa – including the elusive Black Rhino.
After our game drive in the Crater we head down to the rim and past the ‘Cradle of Mankind’ on our way to the Serengeti National Park. We cross the vast planes as we game drive through the southern and central areas of the park. We camp (no ablution facilities) in the bushveld surrounded by the sounds of the African wilderness. Without any fences surrounding our campsite we are truly in the midst of nature!
The Serengeti National Park’s claim to fame is not only the annual migration of white bearded wildebeest and zebra, but also it is regarded as the best wildlife reserve in Africa due to it’s density of predators and prey. Ngorongoro Conservation Area consists of a large volcanic caldera, namely the Ngorongoro Crater. This massive crater is home to over 250 000 large animals, making it an attraction not to be missed.
