Kilimanjaro: Big Cats in Ngorongoro

It’s been a great day for viewing big cats in Ngorongoro Crater.  This huge caldera is home to thousands of animals and usually the cats will rest in the heat of the day.  But today the weather is cool enough for the cats to be mobile.  We had a young male lion walk right in front of our cars as soon a we pulled into the crater this morning.  We’ve also seen a cheetah and caught a rare sighting of a serval, a smaller, spotted cat that hunts in the grassy plains.

Tonight we are staying at the Plantation Lodge again before heading to Tarangire National Park tomorrow.
