We went to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. There was a volcano that erupted then collapsed on itself leaving the crater behind. It is vast, beautiful land. The conservation area has a free range part where animals roam freely, to get to the crater, there is a descent which the safari trucks do.
|The crater is beautiful, isn't it?
|All this beauty!
We got in quite early and there was morning fog. That did not stop us from seeing our first lion strolling on our way. From the minute we got down to the crater, there were animals everywhere. We were fortunate to see 4 out of the big 5!
|Doesn't he look so majestic?!
|We spotted this rhinoceros from a distance and waited for it to get close to us
|Tourists....hehehehehe. I was one of them!
Some of the other animals we saw:
|Of all the photos of hyenas I took, I love this one most!
|Seeing these hippos roll over was interesting to watch
Getting out of Kibondo, we spent three days between planes and in cars (mostly long drives in cars) to get one full day of this safari and it was so worth it.
|My travel buddies
|Can you see hippos in the water?
|I don't know what we were all doing but I love how candid this photo is
