From the viewing point hundreds of meters above Ngorongoro Crater, the panorama spreads out in a vast arena. The hills rise smoothly from the Crater floor through evergreen forest, and rain clouds cascade over the eastern rim.
Zebra and wildebeest mix on the Crater floor along with some 50 lions, 400 spotted hyenas, grant and thompson gazelles, various types of jackal, greater and lesser flamingos and many other species. In all, Ngorongoro has some 25,000 animals, making this the most intensive game-viewing area on earth.
