A 3-year-old collapsed volcano has created a unique eco system like nowhere else.

Within the crater, a thriving wildlife population exists, with the highest density of predatory mammals in Africa.

Lions are the king of the crater floor, but the plentiful Hyenas are not easy to scare.

This is also on of very few parks in the Northern Safari Circuit where you have the chance of seeing Africa’s Big 5, the lion, the elephant, the leopard, the buffalo and the endangered black rhino.

 

In the late afternoon you will ascend the crater wall and drive to Lemala Ngorongoro Tented Camp for a sunset drink around the bonfire, before dinner and overnight here.
