Welcome to another safari post! Our family trip in July to Eastern Africa was so incredible that I have to split the thousands of photos into more than a few posts so once you have caught up on the first three Africa posts – the highlights of Kenya and Tanzania and a view into the Lake Manyara National Park– we can dive into the next national park. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and visited by more than half a million visitors a year and after staying a few nights in the park and driving into the famous crater, I can see why.
In the crater than there tens of thousands of animals with many of the big nine including , 4,000 zebras, more than 3,000 Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles, 62 lions, and 26 black rhinoceros and in one morning we were looking enough to see them all along with wildebeest, ostrich, elephants, and jackels in the crater which spans over 100 square miles and which date backs more than two million years. Take a look at some of my favorite shots from this gorgeous Tanzanian park:
