Ngorongoro Crater - 06 January

The final part of the trip is a half day safari in the Ngorongoro Crater before heading back to Arusha. We may have seen a Black Rhino but it was too far away to be sure, we did see elephants but they were too far away to photograph and leopards are nocturnal so it was always unlikely we would see one.

The buffalo and hippos we did see looked so benign it was hard to believe they vie for the "most dangerous" badge but they do. Twice we saw female lions so close we could have touched the. One of them was clearly irritated and threatened a passenger in an adjacent car, rearing up and roaring but so quickly that she couldn't be photographed. This was a great way to relax at the end of a pretty demanding trip.
