Proclaimed as the 8th wonder of the world, the Ngorongoro Crater
covers over 8292 km with its crater forests, highland plains, alkaline soda lakes and volcano peaks. It shelters some of the most beautiful wildlife in the world. The crater itself is actually a collapsed volcano called a caldera, which makes it a great tourist attraction. It is home to large herds of zebra and wildebeests, the endangered black rhino, lions, elephants and impalas. Just outside the ridge of the crater you can visit one of the manya Maasai camps, the only tribe allowed to live in this area.
