Tanzania / Ngorongoro

Our third week in Tanzania we headed to the Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the world’s largest inactive intact volcanic crater, covering roughly 260 sq kms. The crater is home to the Maasai people and some 25,000 Elephants, Lions, Hippos, Buffalo, Ostrich, and Zebra. It also happens to be my favourite place on earth.

The name Ngorongoro comes from the Maasai El Nkoronkoro, meaning Gift of Life.

Describe Tanzania in one word

Magical

What does responsible tourism mean to you?

Responsible Tourism is a tourism that respects the locals and places visited in all aspects, with as minimum negative effect as possible, to the environment and locals, and great positive impact to both the host and the visiting, as well as to the environment.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

If I could travel in the world, the place that I would look forward to travelling to is Australia. To view Uluru rock and learn about the Aboriginals.

Happiness is…

Happiness is doing something to someone that they can never find a way to pay you back.
