The crater is understood to be a result of a collapsed Mountain more than a million years ago. You will get to see different a variety of wildlife species from herbivores, predators to scavengers like hyenas.

There are not many destinations in Africa where the big 5 can be spotted in a single day because of its self-sustaining ecosystem, however, this does not occur on most occasions.
