The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most impressive geological features in Africa and, with 20km in diametre, the world’s largest and intact volcanic caldera. Created by the explosion and collapse of a massive volcano some two to three million years ago, the vast flat-bottomed caldera has become a wilderness haven and is often called “Africa’s Garden of Eden”. One of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa and a UNESCO World Heritage Site it is home to approximately 25,000 large mammals, including the endangered black rhino, elephants with large tusks, illusive leopards and black-maned lions, making it a photographer’s paradise.

The magic of “the crater” is contagious and it should be at the top of everyone’s list when visiting Tanzania, the “jewel of Africa”.

There is a selection of comfortable and luxurious lodges located near and on the rim of the crater, offering some of the most incredible views imaginable.
