The Crater Highlands

Rising steeply from the side of the Great Rift Valley, the Crater Highlands are some of the most impressive range of volcanoes in Tanzania. With the vast savanna plains of the Serengeti on its west and the rift valley floor with Lake Manyara on the east, the crater highlands offers one of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Beyond the Ngorongoro crater, a best known wildlife reserves in Africa are several peaks, with steep escarpments, crater lakes, dense forests and grassy ridges, streams and waterfalls. These highlands are home to many Maasai people who have grazed cattle here for years.
