Ngorongoro Crater

We spent two nights at the Simba campsite in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The number, variety, and accessibility of animals inside the crater was astounding. Within twenty four hours, we saw baboons, ostriches, hyenas, warthogs, jackals, zebras, wildebeest, elephants, a black rhino, flamingos, hippos, a leopard, and two amazing lions. The looming crater walls were an amazing backdrop, especially with rainclouds and a rainbow. When we returned to the campsite, a couple of elephants joined us and started drinking from the water cistern.

Special thanks go to Krisha African Safaris for arranging the amazing trip to the Crater, our Kilimanjaro climb, and our tour of Mto-wa-Mbu.  It seems that many other tour operators do either safaris or climbs, and it would have been inconvenient for us to have to deal with separate companies.  Krisha Safaris took care of it all, using their professional contacts across the industry to design a customized trip for us.  We appreciated the personalized service (airport pickups at the different airports we arrived at, briefings, and debriefings, all by the CEO) and look forward to trying one of their Serengeti hot air balloon safaris on our next visit.
