About
The journey from Arusha to Ngorongoro is much longer compared to Tarangire or Manyara, nevertheless, you will be thankful for the early start and late finish as you are adapting to the conservation gorgeous views and diverse wildlife. You will take advantage of the half-day game drive inside the crater. During the game drive, you will spot herds of zebras, pride of lions if lucky see them hunt, stoic cape buffalo, wildebeest, wallowing hippopotamus, flamingo, hippos, and more. Any Northern Tanzania voyage should perfectly include a visit to Ngorongoro crater: it is one of the most beautiful and amazing natural wildlife safari sites in the world also a unique place to interact with people from the Maasai tribe. Relish a day into the wilderness of Ngorongoro and spot the big five as it’s the best place to see them up close.

    Ngorongoro Crater
    Stop: 7 hours - Admission included
    You will depart from your hotel in Arusha at the cockcrow for a lengthy but stunning drive to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Along the way, if lucky you will come across occasional wildebeest, elephant, or giraffe. On arrival at the conservation, you will check-in and then begin the curving descent into the crater. You will then stop at the viewing point for a spectacular if not breathtaking view of the crater. Ngorongoro is the best park to spot all the big five and the black rhinoceros. You will also see big packs of hyena as well as other lesser predators such as jackals and serval cats Later on, enjoy a picnic lunch close to the mighty hippo pool as you take your lunch a few feet from where the mighty hippos wallow in the cool water. The experience is amazing; you will see the very best Ngorongoro has to offer with heads full of stunning memories. Later return to Arusha

I honestly recommend a safari tour to Ngorongoro Crater with Pole Cats Safari. First of all, the Ngorongoro Crater is must see when you're in Tanzania. Pole Cats Safari organize an amazing one day trip. Our guide was super nice, and helped us to spot every animal possible. He got a lot of knowledge about animals and he was eager to share it with us. We were provided with breakfast and lunch boxes.

Really worth to try. Place itself is breathtaking, for the guy who saw this only in tv programmes so far it was really strong experience to see animals and the whole crater in my own eyes. I truly recommend organizing trips with Polecat Safaris, it was very well organized and on time. Guide describes everything very well and was open to all suggestions. I'm really happy for the trip and can honestly recommend it to everyone.

It was very uncomplicated and professional to book with James (we only booked the afternoon before the trip). During the trip, we were teamed up with other tourists and had to change the car twice, however, this was no problem at all since it was always taken great care of us and we enjoyed our trip a lot. Given the exceptional competitive price of the trip, this was great value and we would for sure book with James again.
