About 20kms across, 600 meters deep and 300 sq. kms in area, the Ngorongoro Crater is a breath-taking natural wonder. The rich pasture and permanent water of the crater floor supports a large resident population of wildlife of up to 25,000 predominantly grazing animals. These include wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, buffalo, eland, kongoni and warthogs.
