The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is home to Ngorongoro Crater. It was formed some 2.5 million years ago from a volcanic mountain sinking due to inactivity and was initially thought to be higher than Tanzania's famous Kilimanjaro. The crater has evolved into a unique and integral part of Tanzania's ecosystem. The crater is a caldera, measures 22.5 km across and the rim walls stand 600m high. Views from within and from the rim are breathtaking. The crater houses 30,000 animals and a large variety of amazing birds, which rarely move from the area due to the availability of water through wet and dry seasons. In the evening, back to the lodge / Camp for dinner and overnight stay.
