The first day in Ngorongoro Crater we hope to tick some boxes of our Big Five list. And we do! The first animal we spot, although hiding in the yellowish grass, is the lion. They’re majestic, they rule, they are gigantic. But, when you see them lying in the grass, sleeping and yawning they don’t look dangerous at all. Until they get hungry and prepare for the hunt. Did you know lions walk in formation when they’re hunting? They form a herd and slowly close in their prey. Unfortunately we didn’t see this action. But we were happy enough to see them awake at all!
