Ngorongoro Crater: 2

Posted by : Helen : (is currently photographing in, Australia) on 22 September 2018 in Landscape & Rural.

For thousands of years a succession of cattle herding people moved into what is now known as the the Ngorongoro Crater conservation area (NCA), lived here for time, and then moved on, sometimes forced out by other tribes.
"About 200 years ago the Maasai arrived and have since colonized the Area in substantial numbers, their traditional way of life allowing them to live in harmony with the wildlife and the environment. Today there are some 42,200 Maasai pastoralists living in the NCA with their cattle, donkeys, goats and sheep. During the rains they move out on to the open plains; in the dry season they move into the adjacent woodlands and mountain slopes. The Maasai are allowed to take their animals into the Crater for water and grazing, but not to live or cultivate there. Elsewhere in the NCA they have the right to roam freely."
