A landscape with spectacular views of vast barren highlands and ancient volcanic calderas, with slopes carpeted with thick vegetation, salty lakes, savannah and wetlands at the bottom of the craters.
 
An amazing variety of micro-climates and an extraordinary concentration of animals that make 4x4 jeep safaris really exciting; walking safaris and trekking can be experienced in a scenic environment, being this one of the most beautiful regions of the African continent.
 
The Ngorongoro Crater, with its steep walls and the savannah on the bottom, populated by the highest concentration of animals, is a true little heaven on earth and not surprisingly it is among the most famous destinations in Africa for safaris: a unique indescribable experience.
