In the Crater Highlands of Tanzania,  where the lions, and wildebeest roam, is the large Ngorongoro Crater – the answer to contest #106.   This crater is thought to have been created by an enormous volcanic explosion some 2 to 3 million years ago.  The area around the crater is known as the Ngorongoro Convservation Area (another World Heritage Site) and is home to Africa’s big Five, the rino, lion, leopard, elephant, and buffalo among many others.

Those who ventured out on Safari with a correct answer:
