Lion experience in Ngorongoro

By Julian

The second safari place we went to was Ngorongoro Crater. Ngorongoro Crater is a crater that was formed by a volcano blowing up on itself. When we went there we saw giraffes, elephants, zebras and much more, but I will be mainly focusing on the lions. 

After we arrived we saw lots of cars gathered around one mountain and our tour guide said there must be something big, he thought it was a lion. So we drove all the way over to the hill where all the cars were and we saw that they were three lions! We stayed there for a very long time looking at all the lions who were just laying around. After we were done with that we saw a couple more cars down the hill. So we went down there and saw that there was a young male lion. 

As we were all looking at it in amazement, it started to get up and walk towards us. Dad started recording a video. Eventually it came all the way up to our car and sat underneath it where all the shade was. So Mom slowly closed her window and we all started taking photos. At first I was scared, and then I thought it was really cool to have a lion so close to us.
