a soda lake that, from the top, looks like steam, full of flamingos, a forest and open plains. The large bull elephants that reside here have extremely large tusks, due to the rich mineral content of the volcanic soil and its grasses.
The bottom of the crater dotted with watering-‐holes, shelters almost 30 000 animals in an area naturally enclosed by the slopes of the volcano. Ngorongoro is the largest unbroken caldera in the world and surrounded by very steep walls
rising 610m from the floor. Covering an area of 259 sq. kms, it is considered to be one of the Wonders of the Natural World and is a veritable heaven for wildlife.
