Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania
A cooking pot shaped collapsed volcano, Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the largest intact volcanic caldera in the world. Ngorongoro Crater is also known as the ‘Garden of Eden’, due to the crater’s beauty and it being a paradise for animals. More than 25,000 wild game mammals call the crater home, including the numerous members of the ‘Big 5’ – lion, leopard, black (hooked lip) rhinoceros, cape buffalo, and elephant. A majority of the wild game mammals never leave the Ngorongoro Crater and live there year round.
