The Ngorongoro crater, a large volcanic caldera situated to the Serengeti`s east, is Tanzania`s densest wildlife haven. Around 25,000 large animals live in the crater. The crater has one of the densest known population of lions, with around 62 of these enigmatic beasts being found in the crater of 260 sq. kms. The crater offers prime game viewing of a number of other African specialties with zebras, rhinos, hippos and the wildebeest roaming the vast plains in huge numbers. We stay right at the edge of the crater which offers awe-inspiring views of the vast plains below!
