„Northern Tanzania, Tanzania (Nigel Pavitt)“

Description:

A fine bull elephant feeds along the rim of the world famous Ngorongoro Crater. The crater's 102-square-mile floor and the surrounding highlands are spectacular for wildlife. This feature is in fact a 'caldera' _ the largest unbroken, unflooded caldera in the world _ which was formed two and a half million years ago when a huge explosion destroyed the walls of a volcano standing about 15,000 feet high. Ngorongoro was declared a World Heritage Site in 1978
