The largest unbroken Caldera in the world with a crater floor
Covering a diameter of 20-24 kilometers and walls of 610 meters from the crater floor. It is the 8th wonder of the world. Designated a World Heritage Site, Ngorongoro Crater is a huge and stunningly beautiful caldera full of wildlife. The crater offers some of the best game viewings in Africa and one of the last places to see Black Rhino in their natural habitat. The views from the rim looking down to the crater floor, where grassland blends into swamps, soda lakes, freshwater pools and woodland, are sensational.
Best time to visit
Best time to visit: For wildlife viewing inside the crater, all year round, although during the heavy rains in April - May, for some days it might be difficult to descend into the crater
The crater is actually a small portion of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area which lies between Lake Manyara and Serengeti National Parks and makes up one of three components of the Serengeti ecosystem. The conservation area contains a wide variety of habitats, highland forest, woodlands, and grasslands and is home to many Maasai. Cultural day hikes are easily arranged to the Crater Highlands and to Lake Eyasi
