Ngorongoro Conservation Area

The main appeal of the world famous Ngorongoro Crater is its high concentration of wild animals in a relatively small area. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Ngorongoro Crater was formed 2-3 million years ago when a volcano exploded and collapsed in on itself. With its 2,000 foot high walls, very few animals migrate in and out of the crater making it one of the densest animal populations found in Africa.

At a glance:

- An incredible variety of flora and fauna, grown as a consequence of the crater having formed its own ecosystem.

- Yellow fever trees in the south and pods of hippo wallowing their days away in the east.

- The much drier north is where most of the game reside including the famous resident black rhinos.
