October 23rd, 2010
Two to three million years ago in Tanzania, a massive volcano collapsed, scarring the land with a huge crater. Today, this ancient crater, called Ngorongoro Crater, is home to one of the densest wildlife populations in Africa. All of the famous "big five" African animals live here: lions, leopards, rhinos, African buffalo and elephants. There are also cheetahs, zebras, hippos, flamingos, ostrich, hyena and many more rare and beautiful animals. Inside Ngorongoro Crater, there are forests, swamps, great salt lakes and grasslands.
