|Looking down into the crater|
|We came across this guy on the road, around 300m from our camp; pretty cool right? |
Although he did have us closely monitoring our surrounds while eating dinner
|Heading into the crater|
|And cat success only 15 minutes in! Yay!!|
|Looking out across the crater; loving the rays of sun in this pic|
|Zebra and wildebeest everywhere!!|
|Wildebeest: Not really a pretty animal|
|Zebra enjoying a got head and body rub|
|They were really loving that rock!|
|One of Mike’s photos….just beautiful!|
|Pink Flamingos as far as the eye can see|
|Spotted Hyena in the distance|
|Such a strange looking animal but I think that’s why I like them so much|
|These lions were just taking it easy, for once minus the million cars|
Certainly one of the biggest disappointments was the disregard for the rules by the various tour companies; while we were expected to follow them religiously, they did not, and often this was to the detriment of the animal’s well-being. At one kill there were approximately 20 vehicles and we struggled to get past them as we attempted to exit the crater.
|The circus comes to Ngorongoro Crater! Do you think these tour companies are |
following park rules (like we have to?)!
|The circus: We were actually just trying to get out of the crater but as you can |
see the road was a tad crowded. Hmmm, this looks a few more than five vehicles
|And the cause of all of the commotion; poor lion :-(|
|Looking back onto the crater|
Anyway, we were just happy to finally be in Serengeti!
