Nature: Jackals of the African Crater
As "Nature: Jackals of the African Crater" shows, the dog-like jackal lives a far more complicated -- and challenging -- life than many once believed. Indeed, jackals need all the creativity and cunning they can muster to survive on the rolling grasslands and marshes of Africa's Ngorongoro Crater, where three species of jackal -- golden, black-backed, and side-striped -- struggle to raise families and find food.

Voices From Ngorongoro
In November 1995 Francis ole Ikayo and Geoff Taylor recorded six traditional meetings in Ngorongoro Conservation Area on video for the Forests, Trees and People Programme. In these pages we will reflect the debate that followed when these videotaped voices reached the authorities and the donors. We would like to discuss this particular conflict but also pastoralists' problem with development planning in general, with a point of departure in what they themselves say.

Photogallery Ngorongoro Crater On this section of the Tanzania Internet Project, photographer Ralf Oellerich offers a series of stunning images of the Ngorongoro Crater. Pictures include shots of landscapes, Masai villagers, and animals, from elephants to zebras.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area
The World Heritage Committee has inscribed the Ngorongoro Conservation Area on the World Heritage List for its cultural and natural heritage. According to the World Heritage Convention, "cultural heritage" is a monument, group of buildings or site of historical, aesthetic, archaeological, scientific, ethnological or anthropological value. "Natural heritage" designates outstanding physical, biological, and geological features; habitats of threatened plants or animal species and areas of value on scientific or aesthetic grounds or from the point of view of conservation.

Tanzania Tourist Board
According to Tanzania's Tourist Board, Tanzania is Africa's friendliest country. Since Ngorongoro is in Tanzania, maybe that makes Ngorongoro Africa's friendliest national park. There's ample information about Ngorongoro here, including activites and special interests, accommodation, and booking and further miscellaneous information.

George Fox University East Africa Safari
In May of 1998 a group of 17 students and two leaders (with families) from Oregon's George Fox University traveled to northern Tanzania for a three-week experience. While many tourists go to Africa only for an animal safari, these travelers purposefully went to the village of Babati to experience rural African life. Among their stops: Ngorongoro Crater.
