In the Highlands area of the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area (NCA), there are some great opportunities for breaking up a vehicle-based safari and stretching your legs at the Empakaai Crater Ngorongoro. The stunning but relatively unknown Empakaai Crater Tanzania lies some 40km northeast of its famous neighbor, the Ngorongoro Crater. The Empakaai crater hike will take you through a walking safari around the crater!
