Friday – 09/14
Up at 6:00 AM and breakfast at 7 (no run, too dangerous to run in this area around sunrise), off for our safari by 8:00. It was a long dusty bumpy ride around and won into the Ngorongoro crater. We were treated to a score of critters in the 100 square miles of terrain. Among the many animals we saw up close were: giraffe, zebra, hyena, baboon, lion, hippo, wildebeest, jackal, pumba, Thompsons gazelle, water buffalo, bustard, ostrich, and cows. It was kind of sad when the Maasai tribesman tried to sell us trinkets at the bathroom stop. We had a nice lunch stop in the park that included a close-up view of a hippo.
