Tanzania National Parks | Ngorogoro Crater  

Situated some 190 km. west of Arusha between Lake Manyara and Serengeti National Parks the Ngorongoro Conservation Area covers an area of over 8,000 sq. km. The Ngorongoro Crater at 2,286 meters above sea level is the largest unbroken crater in the world.

Surrounded by very steep walls rising 610 meters above the crater floor, this natural amphitheater covers an area of about 260 sq km. and is home to 30,000 animals, almost half of them zebras and wildebeest. Such vast numbers attract predators a plenty, mainly lion and hyena but also cheetah and leopard.

The Ngorongoro has been declared a World Heritage Site and is regarded as the eighth wonder of the world. 'It is impossible to give a fair description of the size and beauty of the crater, for there is nothing with which one can compare it. It is one of the wonders of the world'. Said Professor Bernhard Grzimek in his introduction to the Ngorongoro Guidebook of 1980.

Ngorongoro Crater remains the only attraction within this huge and diverse area that contains soaring mountains, archaeological sites, rollin plains, rivers, forests, lakes and shifting sand dunes. It is the largest unbroken caldera in the world, the second largest extinct crater in the world, and today shelters the most beautiful wildlife haven left on earth with a spectacular concentration of wildlife and stunning views. This natural amphitheatre is oval in shape, 300 sq. Km in area, 610m deep.

Ngorongoro is home to 30,000 larger animals within the crater itself. This is undoubtedly the best place to see black rhino in Tanzania as well as prides of lion that include the magnificent black-maned males. All of the big five are seen - elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo. Other game includes: cheetah, hyena, zebra, warthog, impala, hartebeest, eland and lots of other members of the antelope family and smaller mammals of sorts.

Birdlife includes: - Kori bustard, secretary bird, crested crane, maribou stock, goliath, heron, beautiful fish eagles, and thousands of colourful flamingoes.

The crater rim is wooded with mountain forest vegetation. Blooming in acres of flowers e.g. pink, blue and white lupines, candle white lilies, blue hyacinth. The crater has been declared a World Heritage Site and it lies within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area which covers more than 8,000 sq. km.

Olduvai Gorge where Dr. Louis Leakey discovered the remains of Homo hablis or "Handy Man" regarded as mankind's first step on the ladder of human evolution is also located in this area.
