Ngorongoro Crater supports a gigantic diversity of animals due to yearly round water and food supply; this comprises herds of Wildebeest, Buffalo, Zebra, Hippos, African Elephants, Eland and Warthogs. The Parks is unique too due to its intense population of predators such as; Lions, Jackals, Cheetahs, Hyenas and mysterious rarely spotted Leopard. On the Southwest corner of the crater lies Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake, described as one of the main features of the crater. The Lake consists of large numbers of Flamingos, Hippos and many other water birds.
