Ngorongoro crater

You just have to see and experience this world wonder with your own eyes! Its crater is five times more sensational than it looks on screen.

For lack of a befitting description, it is a 30km diameter rock bowl which is about 600m deep and endowed with volcanic soil.

This has facilitated the growth of nutrient-filled grass thereby attracting just about every African animal.

It is as lush as it was when Africa had just been colonized, with a lake full of pink flamingos. As the sun rises, beautiful clouds hang over the crater making it look as beautiful as a million-dollar painting.
