Traveller’s Feedback – NCA
"This is a true sanctuary of wildlife, the Ngorongoro crater. What continued to amaze me in our safari in Tanzania was how the flora and fauna in each of parks was a bit different, even though location-wise they were not that far apart. In the Ngorongoro Crater you can see so many different species of animals, and definitely some we saw we did not see in any of the other parks."
"We traveled to Tanzania for our honeymoon and went on an incredible safari organized by Habari adventure. They organized an incredible itinerary for us and they were incredibly responsive, giving us all the information we needed to ensure we were prepared for a great trip. We spent 9 days traveling through Serengeti, Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater, Empakaai walking safari & Lake Eyasi - seeing an amazing variety of animals and staying at beautiful lodges in the evening. "
"The physical layout was beautiful- all the game were at the bottom of the world's largest caldera. We were there on a day that we did not see a great deal of animals, but we still say several hundred large mammals. Our tour company also planned a wonderful lunch out in a small glen, with staff from the place we were staying- very special meal. "
"Friends Let me start by saying this trip to Tanzania was like a miracle and was something me and friends always wanted to do and it was amazing and Nafika Tours made it even more amazing , my guide ( livin ) took us on a journey through the Serengeti and ngorongoro the things we saw and experienced was nothing like i have experienced before we saw a lioness catching a zebra for it's cubs to feast on and on the next day we saw buffaloes scaring away lions"
"If you want to get away from the crowds of Ngorongoro Crater, a short drive (2-ish hours) takes you to the rim of Empakaai Crater. Below, the crater floor is largely taken up by a jade-coloured lake. A half-hour walk and you're at the lakeshore - if you're lucky, it might be teeming with flamingoes"
