Itinerary Details

Day 1: Safari to Ngorongoro Crater

We depart Arusha town in the morning and drive via Lake Manyara National Park for lunch and an afternoon game viewing before proceeding on to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Overnight at the selected campsite on the crater rim.

Day 2: Safari to Olmoti Crater

Departing the campsite after breakfast we drive up to Nainokanoka Masai Village on the slopes of Olmoti mountain where we pick-up the local guide/and ranger and start the ascent of Olmoti crater.  Olmoti crater is a sunken caldera that can only be reached on foot and is about a 3-4 hours walk to the rim.  From the rim you could walk to an appealing waterfall where the Munge River leaves the Olmoti crater.  Water collecting in the crater flows down the falls and eventually runs into Lake Magadi in Ngorongoro Crater.  We set camp back at Nainokanoka village close to the Masai boma.

Day 3: Safari to  Empakaai Crater

After breakfast we depart Nainokanoka village and follow Masai cattle trails northeast across the grasslands of the Embulbul depression, towards Empakaai crater, reaching the lightly wooded crater rim on its southern edge, which normally takes 7 – 8 hours.  Almost half the floor of the 6km wide, 300m high Empakaai crater is taken up by a deep soda lake.  Blue monkey, buffalo, and bushbuck are likely to be seen on the rim, which boasts good views of Lengai Volcano, Kilimanjaro and Lake Natron.  The crater floor is home to a variety of antelope and water birds.  We set camp on the crater rim for the night.

Day 4: Safari from Empakaai Crater rim trek

A path circles the whole of the crater rim and we can follow this to reach a low point on the western rim.  The views from here down into the crater are spectacular.  The steep inner walls are densely forested and drop to the flat crater floor, which is partly submerged under a lake, often surrounded by huge flocks of Flamingos.

Day 5: Safari Nainokanoka Masai Village

After breakfast we return from Empakaai via the western trail and spend the night back at Nainokanoka village close to the Masai boma.

Day 6: Safari from  Ngorongoro crater Arusha

After breakfast we descend into the Ngorongoro Crater with our vehicle for the half-day crater Tour. After lunch we break camp and depart back to Arusha town where you will be dropped off at your hotel.
