This trip is a two in one marvel as you get to visit one of the biggest soda lakes in Tanzania Lake Manyara and also visit the beautiful Ngorongoro crater. An hour apart from the crater and 3hrs drive from Arusha is the scenic Lake Manyara National Park where just by the entrance one is invited with a troop of baboons coupled with blue monkeys swinging from one mahogany tree to the other. Approaching the lake the flocks of flamingoes make a wonderful pink blanket covering the lakes in their hundreds.

One might think it’s not possible for a volcano to erupt, remain unbroken but still sink in with all the surrounding animals and vegetation till one visits Ngorongoro crater that is just a manageable distance from Lake Manyara National Park and attest that it is surely a natural wonder. A bowl that never fills is the picture that comes to mind to most natives because no matter how much rain is experienced in the crater it never floods hence earning its name the un-flooded caldera. A visit to Ngorongoro will leave ones jaw dropping not only by the view of the caldera from the rim, the cohabitation of man and animals in the conservation area but also the bountifulness of animals within the crater.


Highlights of the trip
- Game drive in Lake Manyara National Park; an alkaline lake filled with flocks of flamingos , hippos in their ponds, but also a lot of land animals like dikdik, elephants, buffaloes, gazelles .
- Bird watching in Lake Manyara which has about 400 species of birds throughout the year
- Camping within the Ngorongoro crater
- Game drive as you ascend and descend the crater
