We left the Serengeti and had a long day of driving from Lobo all the way to the Ngorogoro Crater Conservation Area. We stayed that evening on the Crater Rim with a spectacular view. It was so much larger than I had imagined and was a fun place to explore with its own microclimate and its own mini migrations.

That was the end of our Africa trip and a great way to see it. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend our guides, our lodges, and the entire experience. Truly something not to be missed. These photos do not do it justice.
