The trek starts with a night at Empakai Crater in the Ngorongoro highlands, with stunning views inside the crater. Depending on your arrival time, it could include a descent into Empakai Crater. The following morning you trek to Leonotis Camp through picturesque Maasai villages. This is a remote camp just on the edge of the Gregorian Rift.
