IMG guide Max Bunce reports that reports another good day of game viewing on the Serengeti, with lots of lions, cheetahs, hippo, and also a black rhino, which are getting pretty rare, and are normally confined to certain areas where they are protected by rangers from poachers.
Today the team will hit Olduvai Gorge, the site of famous discoveries of pre-humans, and then climb up the slopes of Ngorongoro Crater and make camp on the rim. Ngorongoro is a self-contained ecosystem, with many resident populations of animals, and also some that migrate in and out of the crater. Great wildlife viewing!
