African Safari – Ngorongoro Crater – Exploring the crater floor

African Safari – Ngorongoro Crater – Exploring the crater floor

We survived the tricky driving down the side of the crater walls and found ourselves on a rather flat piece of the earth with wildebeest and zebra being the predominate species and some smaller goupings of gazelles. Some more interesting species of birds and a lion or two rounded out our tour of the crater floor.

Lion: For sure the king of the jungle, he is the #1 animal to see on an African Safari. As I’m a big fan of cats, and big cats, I’m really hoping to get some great shots of a pride of lions.
