#2 NGORONGORO CONSERVATION CRATER

Black rhinos in Ngorongoro Crater

Formed millions of years ago, the Ngorongoro Crater closed off its borders to man with the help of walls that rose to heights of 400 to 600 meters. As a result, nature was allowed to run free here and create some of the most exotic species of plants and animals that the world has ever seen. This is one of the few places where you can see the Big 5 in a single day and it also hosts the endangered black rhino.

  • Watch the endangered black rhino
