The most spectacular itineraries are those that include Ngorongoro crater rim walk. Mostly, it starts with a drive to the enchanted Ngorongoro Crater with its truly amazing scenery. You will then continue round the rim, where a crew of guides, a ranger, Maasai and donkeys will be waiting. Begin a marvelous walk in this pristine Maasai land. The track takes you part way around the rim of the crater through open woodland and acacia forests. To your right are the remarkably spectacular views of the crater floor below, and to your left are the endless plains of the Serengeti. A very simple camp is set in a remote location where one of the important rivers off the highland volcanoes enters the crater.
After an early breakfast camp is packed up and the morning trek continues along the crater rim traversing the Olmoti slopes. The trail leaves the rain forest and cuts through grassland and open woodlands inhabited by local Maasai. In the late afternoon we reach a vehicle track which winds out of Ngorongoro crater towards Empakai crater.
There are also options to trek in Empakai crater floor. This unique hundred-square mile wildlife paradise has a greater density of wildlife than sensibly any other protected wilderness in Africa. It’s the last place to see relatively easily free-ranging black rhino. There are numerous lions, and large families of buffalo. The plains gazelle seem inestimable.
