The big five

After leaving Serengeti, we continued to Ngorongoro Crater. When we started the safari, I didn't feel it was important to see "the big five". But - after seeing four of the five in Serengeti, and knowing that the last one, the rhino, would be possible to see in the crater, we all were a bit excited.

Enjoying the view og the Ngorongoro Crater.

The sign on the road, telling us where to go ... ;)

The entrance to the crater. The road down was steep an really bad ... no wonder the sign said only four wheel drive vehicles were permitted.

Down in the crater, there are always water, and therefore also always animals.

We saw lots of wildebeests ...

.. some had found a water hole.

Special animals ...

I wander if this bird is an Augur Buzzard ...

This is definitely an Ostrich.

The big lake in the crater is so salty that it's not drinkable. But it attracts birds and animals although.

Our guide, Stewart, was excited to see this African wild dog in the crater since it's critically endangered.

Some Flamingos ...

.. some hyenas ...

.. some zebras and gazelles ...

.. a pair of Egyptian Dark Ducks ...

.. some African Sacred Ibis ...

.. a golden jackal and some gazelles ...

.. and this beautiful Grey Crowned Crane, where some of the birds and animals we first saw in the crater.

Then we suddenly saw two lions in the water ...

The Great White African Pelicans didn't notice the lions ...

.. as they tried to get the catch out of the water. Seems like they caught a wildebeest ...

The birds just don't care ...

.. but the hyena is waiting for lions to leave ...

Our day in Ngorongoro has just started ... will we get to see the rhino?
