Brief Summary

The battle for the Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most gripping conservation stories of the last century. Those throwing their hats into the ring have included a formidably imposing German farmer, a trigger-happy Scots baronet, and an ex-British army captain with some rather reckless ideas on how to photograph lions.

Such interlopers have had to contend with the Maasai, who believe all the cattle in the world are theirs; conservationists who wish to preserve the Ngorongoro as a natural habitat; and of course the animals themselves, inhabiting the rich grasslands of the crater floor in teeming numbers.

The Ngorongoro Story traces the history of the crater from the pioneering days of the early explorers, through two world wars, up to recent international efforts to save the natural habitat of the Ngorongoro for posterity.
