One of the many security gates into Ngorongoro crater, and it is termed mini because unlike the main gates - it is already inside the conservation area. Thus the required permits and equipment are inspected at the gate.

It is both an entrance and exit gate.

What to do there?Get your permits, vehicle and equipment checked before entering or exiting the crater. At the time of writing, only 4x4 vehicles are allowed into it with a heavy duty jack and spade/hoe.
