Today, long since having collapsed and eroded, it is an extensive highland area with the famous 600m (2 000ft) deep crater as its focal point. This unbeaten world heritage boosts over 25000 larger animals life, the highest densities of lions and hyena in Africa are resident in this bowl of plenty, including the endangered black rhino and leopard.

    “The Cradle of Humankind” Some of mankind’s earliest ancestors are known to have lived in the Ngorongoro area, where the rich fossil sites of Olduvai Gorge and Laetoli have earned this part of the continent the title of Cradle of Mankind. Today, over 60 000 predominantly Maasai pastoralists inhabit the area, tending their herds of cattle, sheep and goats and living in peaceful coexistence with the wildlife, also our East Africa Safari Guide will be able to tell you how do the Maasai people are able to live together with Lions.

    These days are all about Ndutu, there’s a big cinema going on here, the drama is really amazing. Over 8,000 new calves are born every day, lions and other cats are right there to grab their daily meal, scavengers are right there to grab their lunch from predators; the new born are running in not more than 30 minutes, the battle is at the peak.

    Between mid January and mid-March, over 90 percent of fertile female wildebeest drop their calves within a few weeks of each other. Over 500,000 tiny wildebeest dot the plains and predators jump in to feast on the easy prey. In March, the wildebeest are still occupying the southern area of the park but preparing to move north as the plains dry out.
