7 Days Walking in Ngorongoro,Empakai Crater and Lake Natron

Northern Tanzania itinerary for the fit and sportive person who wants to get off the classic safari route and appreciate the beauty of landscape and wildlife joined with some cultural interaction of different tribes.Walking the Highlands of Ngorongoro Conservation area and the Empakai crater, the plains of Salei, down the Rift valley escarpment and up an active volcano makes this safari a complete African experience. The trek up Lengai is quite strenuous but an alternative walk to waterfalls can be arranged for those not wanting to attempt it.
A small day pack with camera, sun cream and water bottle is all you are expected to carry.
