Today, July 7, was our day to see the famous Ngorongoro Crater. It’s a unique place - the world's largest inactive, intact and unfilled volcanic caldera. The crater wall is about 2,000 feet high, and the caldera’s area is about 100 square miles. It’s big enough to support huge herds of wildebeest and zebra, but compact enough that from anywhere inside, you can see that you are surrounded by a high, steep barrier. The name Ngorongoro is derived from an onomatopoeic Maasai word meaning “cowbell.”
