It is the largest inactive and unbroken volcanic caldera in the world, measuring about 16-19 km in diameter (9-12 mi) and 610 meters (2,000 feet) in depth. Reputed as "the Eden of Africa", the super 'bowl' houses an incredible ecosystem for diverse scenery and a wide range of globally threatened animals and birds. During the game drive, you may see herds of zebras, gazelles, lions, leopards, hyenas and come across the endangered black rhinos if lucky. Lake Magadi at southwest corner of the crater often inhabited by silver-checked hornbill, grey crowned cranes, flamingos and other water birds.
