Discover the iconic Ngorongoro Crater
The Ngorongoro Crater in Northern Tanzania, once a gigantic volcano, 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, long since having collapsed and eroded, it is an extensive highland area with the famous 600 m 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.

THE WORLDS LARGEST INTACT CALDERA
Once a gigantic volcano, the Ngorongoro Crater in northern Tanzania is now the largest inactive intact and unfilled caldera in the world. Some maintain that, before it erupted, it would have been higher than Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. Today, long since having collapsed and eroded, it is an extensive highland
area with the famous 600m (2 000ft) deep crater as its focal point.
The spectacular assemblage of wildlife within the Crater is one of the world’s wonders, and close encounters with wildlife in this Garden of Eden are always memorable. With one of the highest densities of lions and hyenas in Africa, an estimated 25 000 large mammals are resident in this bowl of plenty, including the endangered black rhino and leopard.
