Day 7

Ngorongoro Crater

Just 10 miles wide, Ngorongoro Crater was formed from a collapsed volcano. It’s now a self-sustaining ecosystem with the densest predator population in all of Africa – you may be able to spot the Big 5 in a single afternoon! Camping on the Crater’s rim offers you early morning access to its wildlife-filled floor before any other safari-goers.
