Ngorongoro Crater often called Africa Eden and 8th Natural Wonder of the World, a visit to the Crater is a main draw card for tourist coming to Tanzania and definite world class attraction. Within the Crater rim, large herds of zebras, and wildebeest graze nearby while sleeping Lions laze in the sun. At dawn, the endangered black rhinos return to the thick cover of the crater forest after grazing on dew laden grass in the morning mist. Just outside the Crater ridge, tall Maasai herd cattle and goats over green pastures through the highland slopes, living alongside the wildlife as they have for centuries.
Ngorongoro Conservation Area includes its eponymous famous crater, Olduvai Gorge, and huge expanses of highland plain, scrub bushes and forest that cover approximately 8300 square kilometers. A protected area only indigenous Maasai are allowed to live within its borders. Lake Ndutu and Masek both alkaline soda lakes are home to rich game population as well as series of peaks and volcanoes.
