The Ngorongoro Crater was once a gigantic volcano, perhaps taller than Kilimanjaro. Today, its peak long since collapsed and eroded, it is now an extensive highland area with the famous Ngorongoro Crater as its focal point. This natural amphitheatre covers an area 260 sq.km and has approximately 25,000 large mammals, almost half consisting of Zebra and Wildebeest. The wildlife within the Crater is one of the world’s wonders and the Crater itself has been declared a World Heritage Site.
