DAY 2 AND 3: NGORONGORO CRATER

We shall then head to the Ngorongoro Crater, a large and scenic crater located at about 2000m above sea level. On the way, we shall drive through the Western wall of the Great Rift Valley. We shall have an opportunity to learn about the crater and also view models of the entire area. This crater is about 600m deep and has an amazing view both from the top and inside the crater.

The mighty Ngorongoro is known as one of the wonders of Africa; and a key location on our Tanzania Wildlife Photography Safaris. Herds of wild animals are plenty inside the crater as well as wonderful views of the crater walls. Look out for the local Lions, Black Rhinos, Common Zebras, Cheetah, assorted Gazelles, Nile Hippos and Wildebeests.

We shall enjoy two full days in the crater enjoying photography safari drives. We shall take a break around mid-day to enjoy our picnic lunch; as we absorb the great landscapes of the Tanzania Wildlife Photography Safari.

DAY 4 AND 5: NDUTU PLAINS AND LAKE NDUTU

We shall spend this time enjoying wildlife photography safari drives around the vast Ndutu Plains. We shall be hoping for many mammals and beautiful grassland birds’ species here. We shall also visit the shores of Lake Ndutu, which is often a great site for our Tanzania Wildlife Photography Safari.

Ndutu plains are where the annual Wildebeest migration starts, by thousands of females calving on these plains. These plains host exciting wildlife at all times of the year and often forms a highlight on all Tanzania Wildlife Photography Safaris. Mammals here include Leopards, Thompson’s Gazelles, Grant’s Gazelles and Cheetahs.
