2 Days Ngorongoro Crater Safari
The Ngorongoro Crater, at 2.286m, is the world’s largest unbroken caldera.
The deep Volcanic Crater, about 20 kilometers across, 600 meters deep, and covering 300 square kilometers, is the crown jewel of the Ngorongoro National Park.
The depth is 2000 feet below the rim. Watering holes dot the Crater floor, which shelters nearly 30,000 animals in an area naturally enclosed by the volcano’s walls. This is the only park in Africa where you can see the Black Rhino, as well as Buffalo, Cheetah, Lion, Hyena, Hippo, Zebras, Elephants, Wildebeest, and many other African game animals.
