Ngorongoro Crater

Published: March 13th 2008EDIT THIS ENTRY

After another game drive in the morning, we had lunch at the camp site, then packed up everything and headed towards Ngorogoro crater, on the way out we took a small detour and found two cheetahs, they were laying down on a large mound and no more than 20 feet from the trucks.

The crater was vastly different from the Serengeti, we camped on the rim which was very cool at night. We had zebras grazing around our tents during the night. This camp site also had caged rooms for cooking and eating. There were a lot of people staying at the camp site and the dining cage, although very big, was quite crowded. There were showers but only the women's was hot, so a few of us men sneaked in late at night and had hot showers.
