Ngorongoro is world's largest, unflooded, unbroken Caldera. It is 10 to 12 miles in diameter covering an area of 102 sq miles. This area was discovered in 1911 by German Professor Kattwinkel. However, Dr OSCAR BAUMANN was the first whiteman to see the Caldera on 18.3.1892. In 1899, German brothers Adolf and Frederich Siedentopf farmed in the Crater floor. In 1972, the Caldera was made a World Heritage Site and called "THE 8th WONDER OF THE WORLD". The Maasai have lived here for 400 years, possibly from 1640. Baumann's writes about the Caldera, just as todays visitors see it from the 'VIEW POINT' on its rim. Adolf arrived in German East Africa (Tanganyika) in 1898 and with his brother Frederich, started a farm in 1904 in the northern end of the Crater. In 1911, Adolf now 39, married Paula Meyer, 27, from ARUSHA. In 1914, Frederich started hunting safaris in the Crater. The 1st World War saved the Crater.Read more ›
