Photographer's Note

Sleeping in a hotel at the edge and getting up quite early in the morning, we headed inside Ngorongoro Crater, the "Noah's Ark" and one of the seven natural wonders of Africa, as well as being a UNESCO Heritage Site.

The sun is still young, morning mist has not completely dissolved yet and the hunters are starting to get lazy after a hunters night. A curious young lion approaches the photographer with careful steps. Soon he will be sitting nearby in a cosy mood, enjoying the delicious zebra-perfume brought to him by the morning breeze.

Ngorongoro is the largest volcanic crater on earth (formed by the explosion of an old volcano as huge as its sister Kilimanjaro), with a diameter of more than 30 kilometers and a depth of 600 meters. Thanks to its constant climate throughout the year and variety of its vegetation, the geological "bowl" boasts being home to all the possible large animals of East Africa, even a comparingly large population of rhinos, and thus gaining the righty nickname of "Noah's Ark on Earth".
