Stop At: Ngorongoro Crater, Ngorongoro, Ngorongoro Conservation Area Tanzania

As you descend into the Ngorongoro Crater with your guide, you’re entering the largest intact volcanic caldera in the world. Designated as a World Heritage Site, the crater measures 259km2, and is surrounded by walls towering to 610m. The mineral-rich crater floor – enclosed on all sides – has virtually formed its own ecosystem. From forested walls to grassy plains, and woodlands to lakes, the diversity of habitats are home to a wide variety of bird and animal life, in large numbers.

Down here on the crater floor you can expect to see herds of zebra, wildebeest, Thomson’s gazelle and buffalo, with the open plains also home to Grant’s gazelle and topi. Predators are regularly seen, especially lion, hyena, jackal and bat-eared fox, though cheetah and leopard also occur here. And as if that wasn’t enough, the crater is also one of a handful of places in Africa where you have a very good chance of seeing rhino.

Bird species are also numerous and varied. Kori bustards and secretary birds stalk the plains, African spoonbills and yellow-billed storks feed in and around the streams, whilst flamingos can be found on the soda lake. Anteater chats call noisily and black kites patrol the picnic area for an easy meal.

It’s not easy to drag yourself away at the end of the day, but as you climb out of the crater, you’ll gain the perspective of height. Down on the plains, the animals merge back into their environment and gradually fade from view, leaving you with memories and – with luck – some great photographs.
