Day 11 – Driving to Ngorongora Crater

We left Kubu Kubu Tented Lodge and headed toward the crater for a two night stay at the Ngorongoro Farm House. Just as we were heading out Michael spotted a caracal crossing the road. We stopped and waited for him/her to come out of the tall grass. What a beautiful cat! We also saw our first cheetah, who posed nicely for me. Then just as we exited from the Serengeti gate, five lions were spotted a short distance from the road drinking from some puddles. Again, amazing.

At lunch we spotted the first and only woodpecker – the one time I didn’t have my camera on me. Kathy took some photos. Based on observations at the time, we think it was a Cardinal Woodpecker.
