Today you will be taken on a crater tour complete with picnic lunch. If you’re lucky you will spot many of the animals on your ‘must see’ list.
Ngorongoro Crater is a deep, volcanic crater, the largest unflooded and unbroken caldera in the world, measuring about 20 kms across, 600 meters deep and 300 sq kms in area. Ngorongoro Conservation Area was accorded the status of a World Heritage Site. The high walls of the crater itself, serve as a natural enclosure for an abundance of wildlife. There is a large resident population of varied ground game with the very real chance of you being able to see the ‘big five’. Among the notable birds are Lammergeyer, Vereaux’s Eagle and Egyptian Vulture, which make their home in the highest of the crater wall, the beautiful Rosy-breasted Long claw, which appears on the plains after rains, and flocks of lesser and Greater Flamingos which are spasmodic visitors to the crater lakes.
Back at Plantation Lodge, dinner will be cooking away and after a much deserved hot shower, sit down for a meal in the beautiful dining area.
