Day 6 of Safari–Wildlife of Ngorongoro

26 07 2016

Day 6 of our safari saw us down in the Ngorongoro Crater (actually Caldera).  It is 30x20km across and acts as a mini ecosystem all on its own as the steep walls minimize migration in and out of the Caldera.

The animals are a bit more human acclimatized and so aren’t as skittish when the vehicles pass by.
