The main focus on this conservation area is Ngorongoro Crater. It was formed after volcano that was previously in its place erupted and collapsed on itself, leaving behind world’s largest intact caldera as we now know it. It is a 12-mile diameter crater with a depth of 610 meters. The wildlife diversity and concentration inside of this crater is probably the greatest. A full day game viewing with game drives is highly recommended.
The magnificent Ngorongoro Crater is only a small fragment of the bigger Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Other attractions inside the park are two lesser-known craters known as Olmoti and Empakaai. An added advantage of visiting these craters is that you’ll be able to descend all the way to the foot of Olmoti or the rim of Empakaai either by walking or driving. At its western rim, Olmoti rises about 3073 m and is reachable by walking through bush and grassy tussocks layered with flowers. An additional highlight of the area is the Munge Falls, which flow through a cleft on the Crater’s southern side. The stream cascades down steep cliffs, hundreds of metres into a ravine.
