Ngorongoro Garden of Eden. Once upon a time, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area was considered as the roof of Africa. 3 million years ago Kilimanjaro was not considered as the “The Roof of Africa” but it was the Ngorongoro Crater which had a massive super-volcano that stood higher and mightier than Kilimanjaro.
