— -- "Good Morning America" took you on a live immersive 360-degree virtual reality tour of one of the most breathtaking natural wonders in Africa.

ABC News' Amy Robach brought the technology of tomorrow to Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater, which some call Africa's "Garden of Eden." This month, part of Africa's stunning Great Migration visits the Crater, making it the continent's greatest concentration of large mammals.

"GMA" broadcast exotic animals live in their natural habitat in a way never seen before, using drone-mounted cameras and IM360's 360-degree virtual reality camera. You can experience some of nature's wildest, most dangerous predators up close, from elephants to hippos, lions to wildebeests, ostriches to gazelles. For the first time on network television, the 360-degree virtual reality camera allowed you to explore the landscapes, in real time. Our IM360 camera was live from 7 to 9 a.m. ET.

In addition to taking in the stunning scenery, the trip shined a spotlight on the dangers that lions, elephants, rhinos, and other animals face from poachers.
