3 Days Ngorongoro Crater Budget Camping Safari

3 Days

Safari Overview

The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most densely crowded African wildlife areas in the world and is home to an estimated 30,000 animals including some of Tanzania’s last remaining black rhino. Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is the dense population of predators such as lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which often requires a trained eye to spot.
