Park history
In 1876, Count
Teleki, a Hungarian, visited the Momella area. He commented on the vast number of hippo’s and rhinos that he saw. The latter, however, are sadly no longer in the park.

In 1907 the Trappe family moved to Momella to start farming, using large areas of the present park as a cattle ranch.

The elder Mrs. Trappe was the first woman to become a professional hunter in East Africa

Ngordoto crater
The Ngordoto volcano is now extinct, but from the pear-shape of the present day crater in seems that towards the end of its activity there were two cones lying very close together. When the molten rock below the cones withdrew to deeper levels, the cones were left without support so they collapsed into its present form.
