A volcano explodes in northern Tanzania... and the Ngorongoro Crater is born. Kilometre after kilometre of flat plains ringed with steep walls, thousands of metres high, this is the world's largest unbroken caldera.
Sharing part of the Serengeti plains to the northwest and Mount Kilimanjaro to the east, it forms part of the Serengeti ecosystem. "Africa's Garden of Eden" is a haven to an abundance of elephants, lions, cheetahs, wildebeest, buffaloes and gazelles. An ornithologist’s paradise, birds flock to the varied terrain of forest, canyons, grass plains, lakes and marshes. For safari adventurers, the Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most interesting wildlife preserves in the world.
