Gazing into Tanzania's Ngorongoro Crater


According to estimates, the Ngorongoro Crater formed approximately 2-3 million years ago after a massive volcanic implosion. With its nearly 2,000 foot tall unbroken surrounding wall, it is the biggest volcanic caldera on earth that has not filled with water. Standing at the viewpoint, it's hard to believe that today the number of large mammals roaming in the caldera is in the tens of thousands.

What calderas (volcanic craters) have you explored?

After about a 4 hour drive from our lodge in Arusha to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, we made our first stop at the crater viewpoint. After stopping to capture some photos of Ngorongoro Crater, the world's largest volcanic caldera, we started our drive down into the caldera.
