African Safari Day 4

Day 4 of this amazing adventure…

 

We stopped for lunch and some beautiful yellow Weaver birds decided to join us.

Today we were able to see some baby zebra. Brown stripes are natural among newborn zebras. They will turn to black between 9 and 18 months old.

 

Male lions sleep 18 to 20 hours a day! We spotted a few lions snoozing in the sunshine.

Ngorongoro Crater, the base of an erupted volcano from 2 million years ago. The Ngorongoro Crater is often called “Africa’s Eden” and the 8th Natural Wonder of the World. It is the largest unbroken un-flooded caldera in the world.

Crater Lodge sits on the rim of the Crater. It was an absolutely breath-taking place. Surrounding the lodge, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area spans 8,300 square kilometres.

 

Maasai village. Hallie even joined in with a greeting dance! They thought it was pretty funny since she didn’t know the moves! They took us on a tour of their huts and showed us how they lived out here. Very different lifestyle than we have back home, that’s for sure.

All handmade by the villagers.
