The group comprises some of the strongest animals in Africa – the ferocious lion, the giant elephant, the swift leopard, the tough rhino and the charging buffalo. The Crater was formed millions of years ago when a large volcano erupted. You can expect to encounter zebra, hippo, wildebeest and cackling hyenas.
