Image you are on Bury Down, on the Ridgeway, looking North.  Didcot Power Station is 5 miles away, Jet is 7, and the distant Oxford Hills are 12. Image now instead of a slope, a drop of 2000 foot, and that gives you some idea of what it's like to stand on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater.
Tanzania, January 2003
My first safari, on the Ngorongoro Crater rim.
Only lodge was the Crater Lodge.
Wooden cabins, cold, and self catering.
Vehicles not really up to the rigours of safari.
