Stop at Olduvai Gorge, a world famous archaeological site for a visit to the local museum, before driving to your luxury lodge perched on the crater rim.

Day 9: Full Day Crater TourNgorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania
Today we will leave very early in the morning (after a very early breakfast) and drive to the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater. There we will have a full-day game drive, as we will be carrying our picnic lunch with us. The Crater is a wonderful place – you descend more than 2,000 feet on steep tracks cut into the crater wall to reach the open plains of the crater floor. The Ngorongoro Crater is undoubtedly the best place in Tanzania to view black rhino, as well as large prides of lion that include magnificent black-manned males. It is also home to huge herds of wildebeest and zebra and many other plains game. An alkaline lake in the floor of the Crater provides a habitat for colorful flamingo and a variety of other water birds. Massive bull elephants feed in the swamps, some adorned with enormous tusks. We will have our picnic lunch at the hippo pool and, later in the afternoon, drive back to the Lodge. Overnight Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge.
Day 10 - 12: Ngorongoro - TarangireTarangire National Park, Tanzania

We have the option of taking a picnic lunch, or arriving at the lodge for lunch, settling in and then enjoying the afternoon at leisure or on a game drive. Tarangire contains a range of ecosystems from grassland and woodlands in the north, to scrub and wetlands further south. The Tarangire river cuts through the park and empties into Lake Burunge in the west. Tarangire boasts one of the largest and most conspicuous elephant populations in East Africa. There are large family groups with many calves being born each year as the population continues to recover from the devastating effects of poaching in the eighties. You will see herds of elephants and experience close contact with matriarchs, babies, teenagers, and bulls. Your close contact will help you understand these incredible animals. Spend several hours surrounded by the herds and you cannot help but feel their wisdom. Tarangire is also known for its abundant baobab trees, most of which are over 400 years old, and its beautiful landscape. Dinner and overnight at Tarangire Safari Lodge/ or similar.
