Ngorongoro Crater

The eighth wonder of the world is the Land of Maasai because of their cattle and fauna. This protected area is located in the Great Rift Valley, a gigantic fracture of the earth’s crust. Volcanoes, mountains, plains, lakes, forests and archeological sites form this magnificent landscape.

At 1600 meters altitude, the bottom of the crater (265 km square) is dotted with watering holes and shelters almost 30,000 animals in an area naturally enclosed by the slopes of the volcano (but the animals can leave). The crater elephants are, strangely, mainly bulls. There are a small number of black rhino.

The bird life is largely seasonal and is also affected by the ratio of soda fresh water in Lake Magadi on the crater floor. It’s called the eighth wonder of the World. Best time: year round, rainy season in April.
