Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro Crater is the world's largest inactive, intact and unfilled volcanic caldera. It's located in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and is about 600 meters deep.
The Crater was voted as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. Ngorongoro was named by the Maasai after the sound produced by the cowbell(ngoro ngoro).

In the center there is a seasonal salt lake which is named Makat or Magadi (means salt). The crater is inhatitated by many kinds of mammals and birds. Very special are the critically endangered Black Rhinoceros.
We descended into the crater before sunrise to behold the beautiful light.
