#Elephant #herd in #Ngorongoro Crater. Why go to Ngorongoro Crater when on your #Safari to #Tanzania? And how to avoid the crowds.

African Elephant, Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania Photo by Chris Johns Once a giant volcano that collapsed inward millions of years ago, the Ngorongoro Crater is today the largest unflooded and intact caldera in the world. Lone bull elephants with imposing tusks—survivors of the ivory trade in decades past—roam the crater floor, while matriarchal elephant herds prefer the surrounding highland forests, which fall away to the tawny plains of the Great Rift Valley.

"Elephants, the world's largest land mammals, are under pressure in many parts of Africa from poaching, loss of habitats to farms and towns, pollution and climate change. Numbers have fallen to 470,000-685,000 against millions decades ago." ~ Tanzania
