The crater is a microcosm of the East African scenery and game. Famous around the globe as an echo of Eden, it is a 12-mile wide volcanic crater, ringed with towering walls and sheltering forests,grasslands, fresh springs, a large lake, and a dazzling abundance of animals of all sorts. The sunken cone of the extinct volcano serves as a natural cradle for the wildlife, which remains in the vicinity year-round. The view from the lodge, located atop the crater rim, is magnificent.

NGORONGORO CRATER GAME VIEWING


Descending nearly 2,000 feet to the crater floor of this World Heritage Site, you will discover the open grassy plains home to swarms of exotic animals, including the 'big five.' One of the most spectacular game-viewing areas in the African wild, the Ngorongoro is often dubbed the Eighth Wonder of the World! There are 25,000 larger animals within the crater itself, mostly Zebra, wildebeest, leopard, cheetah, hyena, elephants, warthog, impala, buffalo, hartebeest, and eland. This is undoubtedly the best place to see the black rhino in Tanzania as well as prides of lion that include the magnificent black-maned males. There are lots of colorful flamingoes and a variety of other water birds around the Soda Lake on the crater floor. Afternoon is at leisure to explore the town or for optional game drive. BLD

Some of the discoveries are displayed in the museum overlooking the gorge. Continue to the Serengeti National Park, the finest game park in all of Africa. In the Maasai language Serengeti means "endless plain," and the 5700 sq. miles of parkland in Northern Tanzania do indeed seem infinite. Upon these grasslands roam more game animals than anywhere in the world. There are over a million wildebeest alone. SERENGETI SOPA LODGE BLD
