Quite possibly one of the most iconic wildlife areas in the world, it doesn’t get much better than the Ngorongoro Crater. A UNESCO World Heritage Site (and with very good reason) the cavernous crater is in fact a caldera, formed two to three million years ago when a large volcano exploded and collapsed in on itself. Today, the flat floor of the spectacular bowl is covered in nutritious grasses and home to an unprecedented number of black rhino as well as black-maned lion, magnificent tuskers and smaller plains game.
