The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is as breathtaking for its landscapes as it is attractive for its animals. The Conservation Area itself covers over 8,000 sq. km of grassland, but its most famous feature is the Ngorongoro Crater, a caldera about 18km in diameter with walls 600m high. The Crater acts like a great natural zoo, with a high resident animal population. Only a few species migrate over its steep walls (600m) and over 20,000 animals can often be found on the Crater floor. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area also includes Olduvai Gorge, an archaeological site that has yielded the earliest known remains of humankind and so earned the epithet 'Cradle of Mankind'.
