Day 7 – Saturday October 7, 2023
On the last of the three safari days, we drove from our campsite to the Ngorongoro Crater National Park. This is a huge crater in which a large number of animals of different species live and come together in a small area due to the good food and water supply. My personal highlight was seeing the rhinos, which are now only found in this park in Tanzania.
Before we drove back to our hostel in Arusha, we made a short stop at the top of the crater wall, where you have a great view over the whole area and the park. Once we arrived at the hostel, we first enjoyed a traditional African dance performance, which we were also able to take part in. Afterwards, we all had dinner together, looked back on the highlights of the week and concluded the pre-conference with lots of new friends and anticipation for the conference in Nairobi.
