Big Cats of Ngorongoro

Ngorongoro is always a popular stop on any safari adventure due to the huge variety of wildlife that calls the crater floor home.

On a recent two day visit to the area, our guests were lucky enough to see plenty of lions!

lioness with cub A rare sight indeed! A lioness takes her cub in her mouth to make sure he's moving fast enough.

They were also lucky to get a few close-up moments with some cheetahs as well!

Rhinos of Ngorongoro

But a real highlight was undoubtedly a rare opportunity to get close to the often enigmatic black rhinoceros.

Shy animals, they're often only seen through binoculars, but our guests got a real close encounter!
