BEST TIME TO TRAVEL
This program can be enjoyed year-round; however, few people like to hike in the rain for hours on end.
So we typically don’t recommend it during the long rains which run from late March through May.
We like this part of Tanzania when the weather is mild in June and November and the short dry season in January and February.
And of course, the dry season (July – October) is a good time for outdoor activities
YOU SHOULD KNOW
This excursion can only be booked as part of an Active Africa safari itinerary.
This trip is rated moderate to hard. Generally the walking is moderate to easy, but the steep slopes of Empakaai Crater and the distance of the Ngorongoro Crater rim hike over rough terrain and at altitude, require good walking fitness.
Given the chance of encountering dangerous game and the length of the hikes, we recommend that this program is suitable for children 14 and over.
We cannot control the weather – this is an outdoor, nature based itinerary and indoor alternatives are limited. Come prepared to take on the elements if the weather is not playing fair.
