The Ngoro Ngoro Conservation Area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve, covering almost 8,300 sq km with altitudes ranging between 1,020m to 3,577m. Frequently referred to as the eighth wonder of the world, the area encompasses a blend of landscapes, archeological sites, people and abundant wildlife that is unsurpassed in Africa. Featuring volcanoes, grasslands, waterfall and forests, it is home to the nomadic Masai.
The centerpiece and major landmark of the Conservation Area is the breath-taking Ngoro Ngoro Crater, a natural amphitheater surrounded by steep walls rising over 600 meters from the crater floor. It is one of the world’s greatest natural spectacles whose magical setting and plentiful wildlife will never fail to thrill. The crater is a natural sanctuary for some 30,000 animals including the “big five” of buffalo, lion, elephant, leopard and rhino. It is also home to cheetah, hartebeest, hippo, hyena, jackal, warthog, waterbuck, wildebeest, zebra and a great many bird and insect species.
