NGORONGORO CRATER: ONE OF THE WORLD’S NATURAL WONDERS
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a renowned World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve. This impressive conservation area is 180 km (112 miles) west of Arusha in Tanzania. Within this region is the Ngorongoro Crater, one of the world’s natural wonders.
EXTRAORDINARY BEAUTY THAT CANNOT BE PUT INTO WORDS
Once an enormous volcano, Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact caldera in the world. Some maintain that before it erupted, it would have been higher than Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. Today, having long since collapsed and eroded, it is an extensive highland area with the famous 600 m (1 968 ft) deep Ngorongoro Crater as its focal point.
Nearly three million years old, the ancient caldera shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife havens on earth. Home to 25 000 large mammals, including highly endangered black rhino, lion, elephant, cheetah, leopard and much more.
