Ngorongoro Crater Day Trip

Day Trip to Ngorongoro Crater from Moshi / Arush Town

TOUR OVERVIEW

Day Tour to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtakingly beautiful setting and the best place in Tanzania to see the Big Five. However, as one of the world’s most astonishing and renowned natural wonders, the Ngorongoro Crater does get busy, and at times very busy. Due to the crowds we recommend a two-night stay only here, then moving on to the Serengeti for a quieter, more private safari experience.

A very kind man I had arranged a transfer and a trip to the hot springs on the way. Unfortunately I started to feel really unwell and instead of the swimming I had to go into hospital. Japheth stayed at the hospital and helped translate for me, then we drove around searching for more health help and he was so kind and supportive while I really wasn’t well. He even missed eating lunch to get me to the appointment on time. A very kind man indeed. 😊 Highly recommended.

Хорошо организованная работа Брали у этих ребят экскурсию на горячие водопады Чемка. Вовремя организованный трансфер, интересные беседы в дороге о жизни местного народа, о флоре и фауне Танзании. На источниках никто никого не торопил, вдоволь накупались, попрыгали с тарзанки. На обед представители туристического агенства организовали барбекю. А на обратном пути к Моши, они остановились показать как растет сахарный тростник. Оказалось, что в Танзании это единственная плантация с тростником и фабрика по производству сахара на всю Африку. Ребят смело рекомендуем!

The Food and Accommodation was Amazing our chef his name was Alli, We had good times with every member of this Group, after the last day of our Safari the next day we had a free time in Moshi so the manger gave us another Activity in the Hot spring with Lunch Box, Local Bear for sure we had alot of Fun I recommend this Company for anyone wants to go Safari for Affordable Rates but Excellent Services.

It is True that Toto Africa is A Signature of Excellence This was more than me and my friend expected, Actually Toto Africa Adventures made our childhood dream become reality, we had no any experience on African Safaris, so we had to search on different website, and lucky we found this Local Company and the reply was so fast, Mr. Japheth the Company Director was Available and answer all Questions we asked, He was friendly and polite to advise us in many ways. On the Day we arrived in JRO (Kilimanjaro International Airport) Toto and the whole team took care of us, actually the driver was very kind and fun, which for us was very nice and felt like we are home , the next day our Guide was there for short briefing with printed itinerary which makes us more comfortable. We booked a Camping and Lodge Safari for our first day was camping inside the Tarangire National Park, the food from the chef was very fantastic and the camping facility was amazing, what I love from This Company is the ability to give us exactly what we were thinking. Let me give their Credit for the Quality service they provide since the day we arrive to the day we depart, we recommend this Company for anyone wants to try Safaris for affordable rates. Again thank you very much for the love and care.

Toto Africa Adventures is the Best We did this tour in June after Tanzania announce to open tourism Again, At first me and My wife we were very afraid if it was true that Tanzania is Safe again, so we decided to risk because we agreed that not to change our schedule , so we contact many tour operators(Big Companies), what we knew that many operators will give us affordable budgets due to the pandemic and economy issues but i was wrong so we decided to give a try to find other local operators and Lucky us we Found Toto Africa Adventures, the manager Mr. Japheth was very charming actually he could not believe to get travelers in this moment , so he picked us from the Airport and we went direct to our Hotel, gave us a time to rest after a long Journey . In the Morning after breakfast our tour guide and Driver Mr Ben was there giving a short brief about our 6 Days Trip and we had a chance to visit Tarangire, Serengeti , Ngorongoro, we went to see the maasai also which was very fun seeing the maasai dance etc. Actually the trip was nothing but Unforgettable because the Lodge Selection, Food was Fantastic and the staff were very clean and amazing. i would Travel with Toto and we recommend this Company 100% .

Fantastic adventure with a knowledgeable operator Our experience with Toto Africa Adventures was brilliant. The pre-tour communications with Japheth were proactive and informative to enable us to maximise our time in the Ngorongoro Crater and see the best parts of it. On the trip, Ibrahim and Japheth picked us up on time and did a fantastic job of showing us around the Crater and finding the animals, along with providing a great lunch. We were very happy with the trip and would travel with Toto Africa again.

3 Day Luxury Safari Our experience with Toto African Adventures was absolutely amazing. We were heaidng to Tanzania on our Honeymoon and had our previous plans for a safari fall through. I sent an email to them on a whim (knowing that email responses in Africa can be slow to say the least-tip:it's always better to call establishments there to get a response as they are not always on top of emails) before boarding our flight in Amsterdam, stating our desired lengh and type of trip and our budget. By the time we had landed in kilimanjaro 9 hrs later, they had responded with a detailed email with a price quote (that was under budget) and outlining exactly what our package would entail. With less than 2 days notice Japheth, the company director had put together a 3 day private luxury safari for us. He even went a step further and discreetly let the staff at the lodge we were staying at know we were on our honeymoon and they went out of their way to set up private dinners for us under the stars. The price point was very good for all that we got. The accomodations were top notch and the Safari Jeep was modern and exceptionaly clean. Our driver and guide, Ben, who is a seasoned safari guide with over 20 years of experience was so knowledgable and is probably the reason we saw so many animals in so little time. While no safari company can guarantee how many or which animals you see, we were fortunate to have seen a vast variety including 4 or the Big 5, such as;Elephants,Zebras,Lions,Giraffes,Water Buffallos, Wildabeasts, Hippos, Ostriches,Gazelles, Antilopes, Wild Boards, Monkeys and Baboons and even Rhinos. Our package included Game drives at Tanrangire National Park, NGorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara. It would be hard to pick my favorite as all 3 had their advanteges but the crater was truly something right out of the Lion King. Tanrangire is renowed for Elephants which explains why we saw so many although we saw tons at Lake Manyara as well. Toto African Adventures picked us up at our hotel in Moshi and dropped us off at Kilimanjaro Airport on our last day, saving us almost $100 US in shuttles or taxis and providing us peace of mind that we were in good honest hands. They offer stops at souvenir shops along the way so we were able to pick up a few awesome momentos from our time in Tanzania. I honestly can't say enough great things about Japheth and his team. He was always quick to respond and was great about using Whatsapp to communicate as many of us foreigners are limited to wifi to communicate. 5 Star service from him and his whole team. We got in late Saturday night and our Safari wasn't set until Monday morning so Japheth offered to set up a day trip on sunday for us. We happily accepted and were treated to a delightful afternoon on a coffee bean farm, learning how they produce delicious artisanal coffee.The farmers family prepared an amazing traditional feast and we followed it up with a spectacular hike up to Mataruni Waterfall. Epic fun and it truly it made our trip feel so much more authentic. We would highly recomment Toto African Adventures to anyone looking at coming to visit Kilimanjaro, Arusha or Moshi areas.

Excellent Safari ,The Best Team and Very Affordable! We just had a 6 Days Tanzania Safari in Most Famous Destination in Tanzania through the Serengeti, NgoroNgoro crater ,Lake Manyara and Tarangire organized by Mr Japheth the Owner of Toto Africa Adventures and it was Very Perfect Our guide Ben picked us up at our Hotel with a very well-maintained and clean car it was clean every time . The chosen accommodation were perfect: When they sent us a quote of a budget we were expecting it to be local but i was suprised by the rooms, lodges , the food etc it is truly a memorable safari for us Mr Ben is a great driver (he drove very safely and comfortably which is a real plus on the roads of the Serengeti!) but also a very kind, patient and well-informed guide! He found his way out perfectly through the muddy roads of the parks, he explained a lot to us about the animals thanks to him we spotted so many animals: especially the leopard, very rare and fantastic! We recommend this Company although it is a new company but its was worth trying and they did not disappoint and i think when we come back, we will make sure to Contact Mr Japheth because he is a great Leader for the Company and he treats well...i remember he gave me a gift a t-shirt with Toto Africa Adventures Logo..Truly Thank you Very Much guys
