Dawn, and you’re standing 8,000 feet up on the very rim of the ten-mile wide Ngorongoro Crater
Ngorongoro Crater. The original volcano was over 25,000 feet high, so ten times higher than Krakatoa and a much louder bang! All is peaceful now, especially after a sound night’s sleep in your fairytale suite at Ngorongoro Crater Lodge
Actually, the lodge is such a wonderful place that you’ll be forgiven for bunking off safaris today to simply sit on your veranda with a good book and, as soon you decently can, a glass of bubbly! The 20,000 elephant, rhino, big cats and buffalo will still be there tomorrow. So too will the flamboyance of flamingos — yes they are called that — twittering on the lake at the very bottom of the crater floor.
