Ngorongoro Crater is a natural amphitheatre which plays host to a procession of wild animals. It is the world's largest unbroken caldera which was formed when its volcano top erupted, leaving fertile plains in its place. Before this happened, it was actually the highest mountain in Africa, towering over the nearby Kilimanjaro. The crater is essentially made up of grassy plains, lush forest and a soda lake which houses flamingos and an array of birdlife. From the rim, at an altitude of 2400m the cliff plunges down some 600m to the crater floor with a whole host of extinct volcanoes ringing the valley. Spot Maasai herding cattle through this wild area and the Big Five on an unforgettable game drive. It is also one of few places to see endangered black rhino. You can stay in lodges right on the edge of this massive crater!
