The Empakai Crater is located within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in northern Tanzania. This day trip to the crater floor allows for an experience away from the crowds. Drive to the rim and walk down to the crater floor. The majority of the crater floor is taken up by a beautiful lake, a great place to stop and relax with a picnic lunch. You will often see flamingo on the shallow waters of the lake, the bird life in this area is phenomenal and wildlife does move through this area so it's important that you are accompanied by your safari guide. After lunch, make your way back up the forested slopes back to the vehicle to drive home to your lodge.
