Our last day on safari was spent in the Ngorongoro Crater. It's technically a caldera, not a crater, as it was formed by a collapsed volcano. It's actually one of the coolest things I've ever seen - it's pretty much a giant bowl filled with animals, like a natural zoo.
The walls of the caldera make for such a beautiful backdrop.
A lioness in the shade of our truck. The animals here are less afraid of safari trucks because they're more used to seeing them up close.

A young male lion.
Water buffalo. Maybe the same ones that woke me up with their munching in our campsite.

More water buffalo.
Male ostrich - the female ones are brown.
This is the last of my Tanzania posts! Coming up next will be my overland trip from Johannesburg to Victoria Falls in southern Africa. There is more safari involved there so stay tuned.
