Ngorongoro Crater Trips

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is as breathtaking for its landscapes as it is attractive for its animals. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it covers more than 8000 sq km of grassland, but its most famous feature is the Ngorongoro Crater – the world's largest caldera at about 18km in diameter with walls 600m high. The geography of the crater means it acts like a great natural 'zoo', with a high resident-animal population. Only a few species migrate over its steep walls and over 20,000 animals can be found on the crater floor.

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area also includes Olduvai Gorge, an archaeological site that has yielded the earliest known remains of humankind, and so earnt the epithet 'Cradle of Mankind'.
