The Ngorongoro Crater


This is one of the largest calderas in the world (20 kms wide) and one of Africa's best known wildlife-viewing areas. Within its walls are an amazing variety of animals and vegetation including grasslands, swamps, forests, salt pans and a freshwater lake.
The second pic shows about one third of the crater and below are the Sopa Lodge bungallows with the most stunning view.
