The climate of Ngorongoro crater (Tanzania)
The Ngorongoro crater is situated in the Serengeti National Park in the northern part of Tanzania. It is one of the largest calderas in the world. Ngorongoro is a conservation area and a Unesco preservation site. Many large African animal species live here. Among them are: zebras, wildebeest, black rhinos, elephants, lions, leopards and hippos. On the edges of this crater campsites and lodges can be found which makes it very popular among tourists. According to several sources the Ngorongoro crater is among the 10 most beautiful spots in the world. The Ngorongoro crater has a tropical savannah climate with a distinct wet and a distinct dry period. Most rain falls from November till May.
