exploded and collapsed on itself some two to three million years ago, it is 610m (2,000
ft.) deep and its floor covers 260 km². Estimates of the height of the original volcano
range from 15,000 to 19,000 feet (4,500 to 5,800m) high. The crater is famous for its
big five animals: lion, elephant, rhino, leopard, and buffalo. It is teeming with wildlife of
all kinds however, including zebra, gazelle, wildebeest, impala, hippo and many
different bird species.
