“There will never be another experience equal to having a lion rub himself against the side of our jeep. Every moment created memories for our lifetime.” - Lindahansen

Every moment is special

Our time spent at the crater was magical. The view of the crater from the Ngorongoro Safari Lodge was breath-taking. We were overwhelmed by the animal life we were able to witness and every moment was better than we had anticipated. Perhaps the most amazing moment was when a very big male lion walked up to our jeep and rubbed himself on it from the front bumper to the rear bumper while we were at the hippo pond. We still talk of this as if it happened yesterday. Yes! We quickly shut the windows.

We were fortunate to see a group of Maasai men come to the lodge the night we were there and watch them as they did their traditional dance of jumping in the air. No, this is not a nightly ritual. We were just lucky. The staff at the lodge were excellent. The best moment came when there was a knock on our room door, shortly upon our return after dinner, and when we opened the door we were presented with two hot-water bottles to warm our sheets!
