The main feature of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is the Crater, a large unbroken, unflooded volcanic caldera. The Crater, which formed when a giant volcano exploded and collapsed on itself some two to three million years ago, it is 610m (2,000 ft.) deep and its floor covers 260 km. Estimates of the height of the original volcano range from 15,000 to 19,000 feet (4,500 to 5,800m) high. The crater is famous for its big five animals: lion, elephant, rhino, leopard, and buffalo. It is teeming with wildlife of all kinds, however, including zebra, gazelle, wildebeest, impala, hippo and many different bird species.
