Someone once called it The Eden of Africa. It is a huge natural amphitheater 21 km in diameter. It is the crater of an inactive volcano whose boundaries bear different microsystems such as: forest, savanna, arid land, and a river with a natural lake.
Among the animals sharing this beautiful habitat you can find Lions, Cheetahs, Buffaloes, Elephants, Hyenas, Hippos, Zebras, Impalas and water birds. A wonderful spectacle, which visitors enjoy on early morning safari, while they discover habitats and its dwellers.
This place can not be thought of without the presence of the Masai. They take their herds to graze during the day to the inside edges of the crater and leave the area at sunset to go to their villages. For us it is stunning to see how they share the land with wild animals.
Listed by Unesco as a World Heritage Site, quite close to the heart of this conservation area of 8300 square km, you can visit the Olduvai Gorge, one of the most important archeological sites in Africa also known as the Cradle of Mankind.
