Prey animals include wildebeests and well rounded zebras while the predators group has lions, leopards, jackals, hyenas and cheetahs. It also has its smaller animals and birds. This caldera came from the two million year old collapsed volcano which form a height of 2000 feet.
The Ngorongoro Crater is also part of the ecosystem that is Serengeti National Park and has since its separation been a big promotion to human and wildlife conflict as the nomadic pastoralist had their problems solved and also gave that beautiful African culture theme to the tourist industry. Along with the Ngorongoro crater one may visit other volcanoes like the Empakai with its central lake and Olmoti with those exuberant waterfalls going down 500 ft along the escarpment forest, OlDoinyoLengai and here one can see the results of the 2007 eruption.
While here one gets to have a look at the prehistoric Olduvai Gorge where evolution emphasis has touch and not also forgetting the culture one will meet and learn here where you have the Masai who have been here since the 17th Century and have since then been nomads and needless to say specialist in herding cattle.
