One-day Trip To Ngorongoro Crater
Day 1 The tour departs from Arusha town with a lunch box, then drives to Ngorongoro Crater. I want to warn you in advance that the drive from Arusha Town to Ngorongoro Crater will take around 3-4 hours. You will descend 2000 feet (over 600 meters) to the floor of the crater for a half-day Ngorongoro Crater Safari. Explore the forest areas that are inhabited by monkeys and elephant, the lake area, where you may see the flamingos and the open savannah where the lions hunt for food. Around 2 pm, we will stop at a picnic site with great views of the marshes with hippos and birds. Ngorongoro Crater offers the highest density of animal species to be found in all of Tanzania’s National Parks. Making an early start on your safari will give you the chance to spot the reclusive Leopard in the woods of the highlands amidst which the Crater is set. The cautious Caracal and Serval add to the list of cats to be spotted here. Herds of Elephants, whose sheer size belies the grace of their silent passage and the Cape Buffalo grazing peacefully can not but leave one with a lasting sense of awe. After the game drive, we will be staying at a beautiful lodge. Day 2 The next morning, the guide will transfer you to the hotel in Arusha Town.
Safari and Trek to the Mount Meru Crater
We believe the Arusha National Park is the best choice for a walking safari. Here, you are able to trek together with your ranger-guide. You will walk in the tropical forest, maintaining a safe but exciting distance to wildlife and you will also observe animals from the comfort of our 4*4 jeep. Together, we will trek up to the Mount Meru Crater (Mount Meru is the second highest peak of Tanzania and the fifth highest peak of Africa) and located right in the park. This is a fantastic experience, worth adding to your African adventures! After the walking safari, a jeep will drive you to the furthest part of the park – the Momela Lakes where you can observe pink flamingos as well as many other animals on your way.

After the quick formality of acquiring climbing permits and registering with the search and rescue service, the group will start trekking up to Mandara Hut (2,700 m/8,858 f). The trekking route includes a passage through the rainforest (where tropical showers are highly probable), so we recommend taking not only spare clothes but also raincoats. When you reach the camp, our mountain support crew will take care of all the necessities and prepare lunch for you. You will spend your night in special huts. Day 2 After breakfast at Mandara Camp, the guide will offer two trekking options: you can either hike towards Horombo camp (6 km) or to Maundi Crater (2 km).

The guides know the route and the time you are likely to spend for ascent and descent, so we recommend following their instructions to make this trip a memorable experience. Upon returning to the Mandara camp, the cook will prepare lunch for you, and you will begin hiking down to the exit from the national park, where our driver will meet you and transfer to the hotel.
