The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact caldera in the world and holds the world's densest population of lions and spotted hyena. As part of the Ngoronoro Conservation Area the area is protected yet also actively farmed and used by the local Maasai people. Together with their cattle and the incredible array of wildlife, coupled with the natural beauty of crater itself, the area is heavily touristed. However if you know the best camps and lodges, unique private excursions and experiences can still be enjoyed in this marvellous natural setting.
Today the crater is the last place in Tanzania where black rhinoceros are easy to spot, there are also many large elephants here.

“Utterly breath-taking views of Kenya to the North (also on the warmer side of the mountain!), a very sparsely trodden route that provides a serious sense of adventure and remoteness. The Grand Traverse offers a huge chance of success for those looking to stand of the roof of Africa”
