Giraffe and impala can not be found in the crater floor, they always hanging around the crater rim possibly is due to the steepness of the crater wall or as most of the time they have to rise their heads up while walking to only have favorable blood pressure that goes to the head. It can  also be luck of palatable food in the crater floor as they are browsers.


Most of the crater floor is an open grassland, more than 24,000 large grazing animals are feeding in this area, mainly are buffalo, wildebeest, zebra, black rhino, gazelles and other smaller moving both vertebrate and invertebrates.

The Lake and pools has become hunting point for many predators that hide in the marsh to ambush large animals that come to drink. Severe dry season lake Magadi and most pools in the Crater are often dries up.


Swamps serves as a reserve for fresh water and food for big and small animals especial during the dry season. Elephants feed on giant sedge and hippos wallow in the pools other small and big animals are also coming for water and grazing at the pool side.
