We will stopover at Olduvai Gorge (Optional), boasting with a history of the remains of the first human kind. It was here, that the anthropologists Drs. Lois and Mary Leakey discovered the skulls of ‘Nutcracker Man’ and ‘Handyman’. These are both very significant links in the chain of human evolution.
After our optional visit to Olduvai we proceed to the crater rim where we have our lunch from before we descend down to 600 meters into the crater to view wildlife for a half day safari tour. Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park, its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes require a trained eye to spot. The park also houses the rare black Rhinos making this a dream of African big 5 complete.
