Ngorongoro Crater


Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater is a world-renowned natural wonder and one of the most sought-after safari destinations in Africa. Located in Northern Tanzania, the crater is the world's largest intact volcanic caldera, formed over two million years ago when a massive volcano exploded and collapsed in on itself. Today, it is home to the highest density of big game in Africa, including the Big Five: elephants, lions, leopards, buffaloes, and rhinos.
Visitors who visit Ngorongoro Crater can enjoy a range of activities, including game drives to observe the abundant wildlife, cultural visits to local Maasai villages, and hiking trails to explore the surrounding highlands.

This year I decided to celebrate my birthday by taking a challenge and that was to climb Mt Kilimanjaro. The idea came 6 months back & accordingly I prepared myself. I made my plan in such a way so that I reached the summit on 21st June 2017 (my birthday).
