The rich terrain of this huge volcanic crater stretches some 260 sq km (100 sq mi) within a protected conservation area, ranking as one of the largest inactive calderas in the world. See endless vistas and the densely populated highlands of the crater, and observe wildebeest, zebras, and one of the largest known populations of Maasai lions.

Amazing place. We were able to see the all the big five within few hours. Great view and worthy coming back.
This was an excellent experience. I highly recommend staying the night at one of the lodges around here and taking a safari down into the crater for a few days. We booked with Zara Tours. We loved it.
