Entry Description

"German Tree" Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania. In 1892 two German brothers (Adolph and Friedrich Siedentopf) settled in the Crater. Their plan was to settle here and farm the area. They plowed the land and planted trees. Only a few of the trees survived after their failed attempt to live off this harsh landscape. This is one of just a few trees that still stands today.
