Since everyone in the world has – or should have – Ngorongoro Crater on their bucket list, I decided to tick some boxes on my daughter’s lists. Crater being one, spotting a Rhino being number 2. The last time I went to the crater, it was peak season and then it gets a bit touristy so I would enjoy this with them, in the low season. We got company from good friends so we had the ideal scenario for a weekend away.. And we had a goal: see a rhino up close!
The Ngorongoro Lemala camp from Sanctuary retreats is without a single doubt one of my favorite places in the world. Safari at its best in a unique location.
We ended up seeing really good game, lions eating a zebra, mama lions playing with cubs, lots of birds, a male ostrich trying hard to seduce a female (and failing badly), lots of babies, hippos .. and a kill when we least expected it! Only the rhinos turned out to be shy and lazy buggers so we saw 2 but it was from a distance and they hardly moved.. Not sure if I want to remove it from the list yet 🙂
