Ngorongoro Crater Safari 3 days



About the Challenge

A trip to East Africa is not complete without seeing some of the wildlife and scenery synonymous with the great open African Plains. We are therefore offering you the chance to unwind on safari after the exertions of your Kilimanjaro trek!

We visit the famous Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara National Park, all of which offer stunning scenery and the chance to see the big five: lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard, as well as giraffe, zebra, hippopotamus and many species of antelope, monkey and smaller mammals and birdlife.

You will stay in safari lodge accommodation, on a twin-share basis with good facilities including mosquito nets, solar-heated showers, and local guides and cooks to look after you. The guides are very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna you encounter, and will do their utmost to make sure you experience as much as possible of their wildlife, scenery and culture. This is a great way to fully round off your African experience!

The downloadable itinerary gives you an idea of the main regions you will visit on safari, but please bear in mind that your guides will vary the exact locations you go to depending on local conditions and wildlife sightings. The actual itinerary is designed to be very flexible to maximise your time spent watching wildlife.

Detailed Information

  • Your safety, and that of the rest of the group, is our highest priority. Our trips are designed and planned with safety in mind. Your crew will be equipped with communication devices (eg phones, radios and/or emergency satellite phones), medical kit and other safety apparatus appropriate to the destination. Our leaders always have access to our 24-hour emergency UK back-up. They are responsible for safety on the trip, and will make any changes to the itinerary they deem necessary, should local conditions dictate. Pre-trip administration - such as medical questionnaires and travel insurance as appropriate - is all done with your safety in mind.


Preparing for the Challenge

  • This is designed to be a challenge, and it is vital that you train sufficiently for it. We will supply you with a thorough training guide once you have registered. We expect all participants to train hard in advance, but we respect everyone’s limits and do not expect everyone to maintain the same pace. Inadequate training is likely to have an impact not just on your chances of completing the challenge, but enjoying it too - and we want you to have the time of your life!

    Our challenges attract people of all levels of experience, fitness and ability as well as all ages and backgrounds. We design our challenges so that everyone can go at their own pace: this is not a race. If you have concerns about your fitness or if you have reduced mobility please do contact us for a confidential chat about whether this challenge is appropriate for you.

    For logistical and safety reasons we sometimes need to re-group, so the front-runners may find themselves waiting for the slower ones. Please relax, and remember that this is a team effort that enables people to achieve their personal goals and earn sponsorship.

  • We plan our trips around the optimal weather conditions, but could still be exposed to bad weather at any time. It is vital you are prepared for all conditions. We provide you with a detailed packing kit-list on registration, as well as details on useful discounts you are entitled to as a Discover Adventure customer. We are always available if you need advice.

    If you are still to buy some kit don’t forget that Cotswold Outdoor, Snow and Rock, Cycle Surgery and Runners Need offer all Discover Adventure participants 15% off any purchases you make with them. Please ask us for the code if you do not have this already.
