The Ngorongoro is the largest, unbroken Caldera in the world. As one descends onto the Crater floor, an exceptional display of nature and wildlife in a unique setting, unfolds. With a concentration of more than 25,000 animals, this ‘Garden of Eden’ is like an on going concert. The Olduvai Gorge, famous for it’s archaeological finds, is worth a visit.
The alkaline Ndutu and Masek lakes in the west are particularly good areas for game viewing during the rainy season from March to May. In the east of the conservation area are a string of volcanoes and craters and along the southern border is Lake Eyai, a salt lake around which the Hadzabe people live - who are one of Tanzania's original ethnic groups. To the north-east on the Kenyan border is the beautiful Lake Natron. Ngorongoro Crater is also presently one of the most likely areas in Tanzania to see the endangered Black Rhino, as a small population are thriving in this idyllic and protected environment one of the only areas where they continue to breed in the wild.
