Elephants in Ngorongoro Conservation Area

There’s no need to search much farther than the Ngorongoro conservation area to find one of Tanzania and Africa’s most renowned locations.

Located within this Ngorongoro conservation area is the world’s largest crater lake, Ngorongoro Crater. About two million years ago, this crater formed. About 2,000 square kilometers make up the estimated depth of the crater. Undoubtedly, it is among the most memorable experiences of the trip to the Ngorongoro crater.

In addition to the Crater and the oldest ruins, there are numerous more attractions. There are over 25,000 different animal species in the Ngorongoro conservation area. For the purpose of giving birth, nearly 1.7 million wildebeests migrate onto the ndutu plains during the wet seasons. Around 470,000 gazelles and more than 260,000 zebras will give birth in this same season and region.

You can witness the massive African tusked elephant and the critically endangered black rhinoceros at the Ngorongoro conservation region. African wild dogs, golden African dogs, caracals, servals, spotted hyenas, lions, cheetahs, leopards, and other wild cats can also be seen in the area. Throughout the Ngorongoro conservation area, there are approximately 500 known bird species. Ostriches and Kori bustards are two of the unique species. Due of the abundance of animals that they can prey on, cats are drawn to this area.

Elephants in Ngorongoro Conservation Area

The numbers of elephants in the Ngorongoro crater are probably the largest will ever come along on any safari. They are very giant animals with ivory tusks that they flaunt around. The elephants were killed a lot before the pre ivory ban of the 1980 and since then the population has grown a lot. The crater doesn’t have elephants since it’s too steep for them to go down and climb out. The Lerai forest is one of the best places where you can view these African giants.

Baby elephants are about 80 centimeters tall at birth but they grow into very large adults. Elephants use their trunks to pick up objects, bathing and drinking. They use the trumpet sound to warn others. Due to their size, they intimidate the predators and they only trouble the young elephants. Elephants can use their trunks to dig and find water in periods of drought. An adult elephant will drink about 90 to 140 liters of water a day.
