Day 155- Drive to Ngorongoro Crater

Today we packed up and brought our bags for our journey back to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.  However, we spent the morning in the Serengeti looking for cheetah! Unfortunately, we didn’t see any, but we did see a lot of other animals!

This mother hyena is guarding her babies who are in the den below! They only put their heads up for a quick second so we didn’t get a photo.

After stopping again for lunch, some storm clouds started heading our way. Since we were on some small, already muddy roads, we needed to rush back to the main road before it started to pour! Thankfully, we made it just in time!

From there, we started our drive to Ngorongoro. Along the 4ish hour drive, we stopped at the lookout over the Ngorongoro Crater! It is 20km across and home to all of the big 5 game animals!

Then we drove around the edge of the crater to our lodge that overlooks the crater! Once we arrived, we worked on getting our Indian visas and then we ate some dinner!
