Ngorongoro also includes the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, often called Africa’s Eden and the 8th Natural Wonder of the World. A massive extinct volcano, its towering tree-lined walls drop thousands of feet to a Noah’s Ark of animals on the verdant floor below.

Day 7: Ngorongoro Crater - Arusha

Today you will explore the world-renowned Ngorongoro rater, widely regarded as a microcosm of natural habitats in Africa and often touted as a veritable Garden of Eden.
