The crater is often sometimes described as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’ with an ever-increasing number of tourists every year. Its rim is over 2,200 meters high and experiences its own climate while the swathes of cloud hang around the rocky rim most days of the Year and get chilly at night.

The crater floor consists of a large number of different habitats that include the grassland, swamps, forests, rivers and Lake Makat (Soda Lake filled by the Munge River). All these attract huge wildlife to drink, graze, hide, wallow and climb.
