Even without the famous migration, though, the Ngorongoro Crater is spectacular and a sight to behold. Today, I’d like to tell you about this amazing feat of nature. I’ll also tell you about the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the UNESCO World Heritage Site that it lies in. Without further ado, here goes!
