experience and a stylish escape. The eight luxurious tented suites offer king size beds with bay
windows and wood burning stoves keep the domed rooms warm throughout the night. The unique

eopard, buffalo and elephant.**

Day 05

The Highlands, Ngorongoro Crater

An early start to the day is the best in order to avoid the influx of tourists into the Ngorongoro
Crater. The park gate opens at 06h00, so it is best to be there as close to this time as possible.

The Ngorongoro Crater is a large, unbroken, un-flooded caldera, formed when a giant volcano
erupted and collapsed some three million years ago. Had it not become a caldera, it is possible that
the volcanic mountain would be about the same height as Kilimanjaro. Down on the crater floor
there is an abundance of wildlife including black rhino, wildebeest, zebra and eland. There are a
number of lion which are typically larger in size than an average lion due to the large amount of
game in the area. The crater floor tends to get very busy, with there often being numerous vehicles
ay any wildlife sighting.

Enjoy a packed lunch under the trees of the crater floor, but keep an eye out for the monkey’s which
are always keen to take advantage of an opportunistic moment. In the afternoon, drive up and out
of the crater and back down the road towards The Highlands camp. Once in camp relax and unwind
before sitting down to a delicious home cooked meal.
