Tour itinerary: Arusha - Lake Manyara - Ngorongoro - Olmoti - Empakai - Lake Natron - Lengai volcano - Arusha
Let us show you some of the most dramatic landscapes and geologic features on earth: the Great East African Rift Valley and Ngorongoro Crater, a true Garden of Eden with its herds of wildlife, and Oldivai Gorge, where some of mankind's earliest ancestors were found.
The contrast between the green highlands with their abundant wildlife and the barren landscapes of the Rift Valley with its salt lakes and the active volcano of Ol Doinyo Lengai is startling and full of surprises. The tour offers a balanced mixture of exciting game drives, relaxed trekking and camping through breathtaking landscapes.
