Ngorongoro Crater

Date: June 5, 2012 | By: Enid Glasgow | Category: Travel Blog

Africa is the perfect place to watch a beautiful sunrise over a land that seems to be unchanged for thousands of years. If being in the middle of the wildness that the African outdoors offers is appealing to you, then you will definitely want to visit Ngorongoro Crater.

Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest intact collapsed volcano or caldera. Due to the amount of life that surrounds the caldera, it is referred to Africa’s Eden. While visiting is welcome, the only people who are allowed to live on these lands are an indigenous tribe, the Masai. If you wish to spend some time in the land of the Masai, you will want to look into one of the fantastic lodges nearby. The Ngorongoro Crater Lodge provides very cozy accommodations located very close to all of the excitement.

If you are interested in an African safari, the Ngorongoro Crater is where you want to be. The area around the crater is some of the richest feeding grounds in all of Africa. There is a very diverse mass of animals that thrive here. You will likely see elephants, lions, black rhinoceros, cape buffalo and leopards triumphantly roaming the landscape. No matter what time of year that you visit, it’s extremely likely to see one of these majestic animals.

There is so much to do and see that you will want to plan your itinerary beforehand. There truly are no bad decisions, as everything that the Ngoronoro Crater has to offer is absolutely astonishing.
