Abstract
In this briefing, by means of slides and a photograph and map display an attempt is made to show you what you won't see during your visit to Ngorongoro rather than what you will see on your arrival! You cant fail to be impressed by the magnificant sweep of the Crater Wall c.2000 feet in height enclosing in an unbroken circle more than 100 sq. miles of Africa in miniature, grassland, scrub and forest: saltlakes, fresh water pools,bubbling springs and of course a phenomenal display of wildlife. But what is not apparent to the visitor is the underlying factors which have brought this situation about, how it is being maintained today and how one hopes it may be maintained in the future. By legal definition we are dealing with man made boundaries, defining a Conservation Area of 3200 sq. miles of which the Crater is the core. But in naturalistic terms we must consider two distinct ecosystems, the Serengeti plains and the Ngorongoro Highlands. The former is defined as the extent of the migration circuit of some l£ million wildebeeste embracing the Serengeti National Park, the Mara Game Reserve in Kenya, and portions of the Ngorongoro Conservation and the Loliondo Division of the Ngorongoro District
