Tanzania’s famous Ngorongoro Crater and Conservation Area is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. The crater is the world’s largest inactive, fully intact, and unfilled volcanic caldera — roughly 100 square miles in size. It’s also home to 25,000 animals, including black rhinos, hippos, seasonal flamingos and over 7,000 wildebeest. Simply put, it’s one of the most stunning sites in Africa and well worth adding to your bucket list. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the awe-inspiring beauty of one of the world’s most majestic places, Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater.
