Ngorongoro National Park

The Ngorongoro Crater, at 2286 meters above sea level, is the largest, unbroken caldera in the world. Surrounded by steep walls rising 610 meters from the crater flooe, this natural amphitheater has a total area of 259km2. In drier times, thousands of animals descend the crater wall to drink from the lakes at the crater floor. It is not rare to get a rhinoceros, zebra, hippo, buffalo and impala all in the same picture. Ngorongoro Crater is located about 250km west of Moshi.
