A Tanzanian Safari in Ngorongoro Crater

Day Two of Safari

Our safari trip began the day before with a visit to Tarangire National Park, home of Ngorongoro Crater. As our safari guide informed us, “crater” is actually a misnomer as there are living creatures residing in the area, which is an active volcano. The crater is pretty damn impressive. There are tens of thousands of animals living there along with Maasai who live in huts and tend to their cattle and other animals.

The highlight of the two-day safari was the lion incident. All weekend, we’d been hoping to see a lion in action.
