Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania, in the Green Season
To visit Ngorongoro Crater in January is to witness the great miracle of new life. January is calving season and is also a delightful gap in between the rainy seasons this region experiences.
The photography opportunities are out of this world with green landscapes, stellar lighting and fewer crowds. The wobbly legs of newborn calves trying to stand up for the first time are quite the spectacle.
The brutality of nature dictates that predators follow when it is calving season. They are drawn from near and far to take advantage of the easy prey. The birds also make for epic sightings since many are migratory. Your camera will not rest during this extraordinary safari at such an opportune season.
