Highlights of the Serengeti Walking safari
We’re uncovering the premier areas of this game-packed region. So we’re footloose for three days guided walking in the national park. Our guides show us how to look for footprints and track wildlife in this beautiful wilderness.
First of all, the Ngorongoro Crater sits on the rim of the collapsed volcano. Furthermore, it’s a world heritage site. Therefore, it’s often referred to the eighth wonder of the world!
The crater floor is a natural amphitheater with a span of 19.2 kilometres and an area of 304 km². It’s home some 30,000 animals including vast herds of wildebeest, buffalo and zebra. And the brightly coloured flamingo on the lakes are an amazing sight.
Elephant, cheetah, leopard and lion can also be seen but especially relevant are the of the endangered black rhino. And, thanks to anti-poaching patrols, the crater is now one of the few places in East Africa where visitors can see black rhino, with the number now approaching 25.
- experienced professional guides lead the walking safari so they’re on hand to track the wildlife
