Referred to also as ‘Old Hunter’s Paradise’ it is home to the legendary tree climbing lions. On the Lakeshore we find herds of hippos, thousands of flamingos and other water birds. After a lunch break at the hot springs we continue with the game drive before we proceed to Octagon lodge for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater
After breakfast, we enjoy a scenic drive to the world's largest volcanic caldera. Immerse yourself in this harmonious environment, home to more than 25,000 large mammals. See the lush grasslands of the crater floor that are fed by the rains and the neighbouring woodlands that provide shelter for the area's wildlife. We learn from our guide about how this bountiful habitat contributes to the richly diverse population. Spot one of the local residents, like a lion, elephant, baboon or leopard. Catch a glimpse of the rare black rhino that finds refuge here. Stop for a picnic lunch surrounded by the natural beauty of this UNESCO World Heritage Site and then drive back to Arusha.
