A few gazillion years ago a volcano blew its top off. Given the size of the crater today, 11 miles across and 2,000′ deep, the mountain was taller than Mount Kilimanjaro, the world’s tallest free standing mountain and just a few miles away in Northern Tanzania.

It is the most intact caldera in the world. As a World Heritage site, the Ngorongoro Crater is one of the world’s most abundant wildlife sanctuaries. One picture can not begin to convey the immense size and beauty of this place.

When the safari guide stopped and turned off the land rover’s engine, I thought I was witnessing the dawn of creation.

Thought for the Day: Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.
Henry David Thoreau
