The sixth largest unbroken caldera in the world, the Ngorongoro Crater reaches a depth of 610 metres and covers an area of over 260 square kilometres. Experts estimate that the original volcano must have been around 5,000 metres high. The Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtakingly beautiful setting and the best place in Tanzania to see the "big five" as well as over 400 species of birds.The caldera’s floor is predominantly open grassland. It is home to a diverse array of animals including elephants, leopards, buffalo, zebras, warthogs, gnu (wildebeests), Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles, and the densest population of lions in the world. The local Masai people also graze their livestock in the crater. Lake Magadi, a shallow soda lake ringed by extinct volcanoes, is renowned as a habitat for great flocks of pink flamingos.
The Ngorongoro Crater has a wide range of activities which include game drives and visiting the masai villages.
