After an early breakfast, descend over 600 meters into the Ngorongoro crater to view wildlife. Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is home to a vast variety of animals, including herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its dense population of predators such as lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which usually requires a trained eye to spot. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually be seen here. Late afternoon transfer to Arusha.
