The Ngorongoro crater is the world’s biggest whole volcanic
caldera at 8300 sq km and is arguably the most stunning arena.
It is frequently described as one of the wonders of the world,
not only because of its geological magnificence, but also
because it serves as an extraordinary natural sanctuary for some
of Africa’s largest populations of large mammals.
The Olduvai Gorge cuts through rock beds layered in time
sequence from 2 million years ago to the present. It is here
where humanoid bones have been found dating back to over 1.75
million years including a direct ancestor of modern man. Fossil
footprints (over three million years old) have also been found
here and are the most ancient footprints yet discovered. There
is an excellent site museum where you can explore the diggings
with a guide and it is also a great place to view birds.
