My version of the year 2012 in review: 12 December

Maurice Housni wrapped up the photo session at the Highview Hotel in Karatu in the lobby of the

hotel. I had one of the best breakfasts at the hotel.

Before we left, we were asked to make our contribution against global warming; each one of us planted a tree.
It is time for Maurice to plant his tree.
Then, with his colleague Benjamin Leers, we began a game drive that took us through the
Zebras on the slopes of  the Ngorongoro Crater.
Wildebeest in the Ngorongoro Crater.
A large Elephant in the Serengeti National Park.
A Zebra in the Ngorongoro Crater made its own crossing in front of our car.
In the Ngongoro Crater a family of Warthogs ran away from an appraching Hyena.
In the Ngorongoro Crate a lioness approached the pride after an unsuccesful hunt.
The other lions looked up, noticed the lioness was approaching empty-handed, and continued with their siesta.

More Wildebeests in the Ngorongoro Crater.
The same Elephant from a different angle.
Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti National Park, where we saw most of the animals found in these two World Heritage sites.

There is a wide selection of books on the Ngorongoro and the Serengeti, including:

Ngorongoro Conservation Area (Great Game Parks of Africa) by Daryl Balfour

The only blotch to the day was when a few kilometres before reaching our destination - Zara Tours Ikoma Wild Camp - our car was bogged down in mud.

However, it only took a while before a rescue vehicle arrived from the Camp and we were soon reunited with delicious meals and comfortable accommodation.
