After your morning game drive, you return to the airstrip for the quick flight to the Lake Manyara airstrip. On arrival, our team from The Manor at Ngorongoro will meet you and take you on a visit of an authentic African market in the township of Karatu. From Karatu, drive through the rich farmlands arriving for high tea at the beautiful Manor at Ngorongoro.
On day 5 a highlight awaits you this morning as you depart after breakfast with a picnic lunch to explore what is commonly referred to the world’s largest wildlife zoo. You travel first to the rim of the crater at 8,000 feet and then descend through the early morning mists 2,000 feet into the crater for a game drive. Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest inactive volcanic caldera and also one of the world’s seven natural wonders. Due to its size and diversity, the crater is comprised of several distinct areas, ranging from forest, swamps, lakes and springs to open grassland and sandy dunes. It is an awesome wildlife experience. After a picnic lunch you will visit a nearby Maasai village and return to the Manor for dinner.
