Photographer's Note

Ngorongoro Crater, located in the Serengeti hinterland in Tanzania, is 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, is 610 m deep and its floor covers 260 km2.

Aside from herds of zebra, gazelle, and wildebeest, the crater is home to the "big five" of rhinoceros, lion, leopard, elephant, and buffalo. The crater plays host to almost every individual species of wildlife in East Africa, with an estimated 25,000 animals within the crater

I took this shot from the top-eastern side of the crater. Increased sharpness and saturation, applied Neat Image.
