The Ngorongor crater is the world’s largest volcanic crater being about 20kms across, 600 metres deep and approx. 300 sq metres in area. Within the crater you can find up to 30,000 animals and from the elevated crater rim you will have an amazing vantage point to view the array of animals. The crater floor consists of a number of different habitats that include grassland, swamps, forests and Lake Makat (Maasai for ‘salt’). Although animals are free to move in and out of this contained environment, the rich volcanic soil, lush forests and spring source lakes on the crater floor tend to incline both grazers and predators to remain throughout the year. You may also be lucky to see the endangered Black Rhino.
