Day Six: Southern Tarangire and travel to Ngorongoro Crater

Today we drove the Southern portion of Tarangire. The terrain was completely different than the northern end. It was much prettier, although had fewer animals. I took about 300 pictures until noon when we had lunch and headed for our Ngorongoro Nyumba.

Nogorongoro is a three hour drive. With our pit stops and souvenir stop, we ended getting in at around 5:30p.m. Driving up to the crater rim, the flora changes from barren and brown to green and lush and quite stunning. As we drove into camp, we were suddenly surrounded by these huge flat topped acacia trees. They look just like the setting from the movie Jurassic Park.
