A lion pride greets you amid the morning mist. An elephant says hello, its tusks curling above your vehicle. Buffalo huff and puff as they march along.
Now a hippo. And another. More than ten of them wade about a lake. Next a rhino, one of the few in East Africa, elegant and graceful as it marches around. You are in Ngorongoro Crater, one of the true wonders of the world, one of Africa’s ultimate safari stops.
Over 30,000 animals congregate in the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera. They represent all the major species (bar giraffe) and you can get exceptionally close on this game drive.
