The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a protected area and a World Heritage Site located 180 km (110 mi) west of Arusha in the Crater Highlands area of Tanzania. A spectacular natural arena for one of Africa’s greatest concentrations of wildlife, Ngorongoro crater is a vast caldera, up to 19 km wide and surrounded by 600m-high walls. In addition to large herds of zebra, buffalo and antelope, the crater has over 30 black rhino and a thriving population of elephant including some impressive tuckers. At least 500 hyenas prowl the crater’s grasslands, competing with the 60 odd lions for the position of top hunter. A few cheetah manage to hold out among these bolder predators, while leopard are sometimes seen in the forest of yellow-bark fever trees. Bat-eared fox and golden jackal are regularly spotted, while hippo is regular feature of the swamp area. Flamingos and other waders can be found around Lake Magadi, but the plains are also teeming with birds, including kori bustard, crowned crane and rosy-throated longclaw.

The conservation area also protects Oldupai Gorge, situated in the plains area. It is considered to be the seat of humanity after the discovery of the earliest known specimens of the human genus.
