3309ex Ngorongoro Crater from the rim

There is no way to capture the vastness that is the crater floor of the Ngorongoro Crater. This was taken from the rim, looking down onto the floor. From here, it appears to be a rather barren land. In reality, there is a lot of water that supports plant life, and the area is teeming with wildlife as well.

More photos to come! Here is my African safari album link

from Wikipedia--The main feature of the Ngorongoro Conservation Authority is the Ngorongoro Crater, the world's largest inactive, intact and unfilled volcanic caldera.[11] The crater, which formed when a large volcano exploded and collapsed on itself two to three million years ago, is 610 metres (2,000 feet) deep and its floor covers 260 square kilometres (100 square miles).[8][12] Estimates of the height of the original volcano range from 4,500 to 5,800 metres (14,800 to 19,000 feet) high.[12][13][14] The elevation of the crater floor is 1,800 metres (5,900 feet) above sea level.[1] The Crater was voted by Seven Natural Wonders [15] as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa in Arusha, Tanzania in February 2013.[16] This is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
