We traveled from Lake Manyara to Ngorongoro Crater in three Land Cruisers. Each person had a window seat and a roof hatch to pop your head up.
We stopped at the gate to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area for paperwork, where a troop of baboons wandered by. The baboon seems almost human. The image is cropped from a photo taken with a 400 mm lens. The baby baboon looks safe and secure atop the mother.
We drove into the Conservation Area and stopped to watch elephants grazing at dusk. The elephants got closer and closer…
Our car moved forward, and the elephant walked behind our car. In the photo you can see our car and the car behind us. The elephant passed between the cars. From the car and people, you can see how large the elephant and tusks are.
An exciting end to our first day on safari.
