Today's travel photo is of a buffalo in Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania. This buffalo kept a very close eye on me as I took its photo, and it continued to do so until we drove off. If you're chasing the "Big 5" on an African safari, you will need to spot one of these guys… Read More

We stopped at the rim of Ngorongoro Crater as the sun rose higher. Before me lay the huge 260 square kilometre caldera of… Read More

Today's travel photo is of a lioness patiently watching a herd of zebras on the grassy plains of Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania.

When I went on safari recently in Tanzania, one of the animals that I wanted to see most was the hippopotamus. I saw several in the Serengeti, but it was in Ngorongoro Crater that I really got my hippo fix. Not only did I see these fat noisy animals wallowing in the water, but I… Read More
