Visiting Tanzania's Ngorongoro Crater in June
The base of this caldera has become a veritable 'Garden of Eden', where thousands of animals cohabitate, and Maasai herd their cattle alongside predators and prey.
See giant-tusker elephants, black-mane lions, 6,000 wildebeest, black rhinos, cheetahs, and flamingos turning the soda lakes pink. June is a unique time to visit the Ngorongoro Conservation Area as it is the end of the “long rains” season, leaving the environment green and lush, and just before the busy high season.
In our travellers’ words:
“The experience is pretty much un-explainable to people that have not gone. It is hard to appreciate what it meant to all of us. We had our family time together, in close quarters, in awesome camps, and with the fantastic staff and people of Tanzania. We saw the animals in a deep and extended way. Our guides were not in a hurry. We would sit and observe and discuss. We would take in the sights, the animals, the entire environment. They would tell us about the animals, the plants, the trees, the behavior. We would not worry about time. It was, in every way, a trip of a lifetime for all of us.”
