If you have ever hankered to see thousands of animal species at one time, including the endangered black rhino, then this is the place to go. The Ngorongoro crater, the largest intact caldera - a depression caused by a volcanic eruption - in the world forms a bowl of approximately 265 square kilometres with sides up to 600 metres deep.
Swamps, grasslands, water bodies and forests make up the crater floor. Animals roam in and out for most of the year, attracted by the lush environment. You can view this extraordinary wildlife scene from several lodging houses on the crater rim.
