DAY 2: NGORONGORO – ARUSHA/MOSHI .
Our last morning, we descend down onto the crater floor for a day of wildlife viewing in one of the most incredible places on Earth. One of the seven wonders of Africa, the Caldera was formed about three million years ago with the massive explosion of a volcano that rivalled Kilimanjaro in height. The Caldera, 610 m deep and covering roughly 260 square kilometres, is an enclosed ecosystem. Ngorongoro, coming from the Maasai for the bell their cows wear, onomatopoeic in its mirroring of the sound that fills the valley as their herds graze, is one of the premier places in Africa to view the big five in their element, in the wild, as well as wildebeest, gazelle, reedbuck, a plethora of others, along with about 500 bird species
After a stop for our delectable picnic lunch near the hippo lake and more wildlife viewing in the afternoon, we ascend, surely sated, up the steep road out of the crater for our return to Arusha/Moshi town and end of our adventure.
