Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater lies at the heart of a conservation area that encompasses a rich volcanic landscape, complete with lakes and a high concentration of wildlife. In fact, it forms a fairly self-contained safari park all of its own. The crater's vast bowl is amongst the planet's biggest caldera. At the bottom of the crater is a fascinating mix of ecological environments, including grassland, forests and swamps, as well as Lake Makat, a soda lake.
