Eden Of Africa
This volcanic crater in Tanzania is one of the most magnificent places you can visit while you are there. It is a story that keeps unravelling by the minute, and you have the opportunity to see it for yourself.First of all, this is one of the oldest sites you get to see in Africa. It is believed that Ngorongoro was formed millions of years ago (2.5 million, to be more precise) from a large active volcano whose cone collapsed inward. This was a result of a major eruption that created the largest intact caldera in the world. Some professionals in the field even believe that this was the highest peak in Africa before it erupted.Nowadays, it is a conservation area and a favorite stop for many tourists worldwide. The given name has an onomatopoeic origin – Maasai pastoralists named it after the sound that the cowbells make (ngoro ngoro).
