Photographer's Note

Lions are everywhere in this magnificent park. Ngoro Ngoro is the 20x20km crater of an extint vulcano that lies just on the Rift Valley. Thousands of animals are living there, as trapped within the sides of the crater, which are up to 600 meters high.
My question is: how did they get in there in the first place?! Does anyone know please!?
Anyway, they got in there somehow and they definitely like it. Even animals which are traditionally migrant like the wilderbests have become endemic to the crater.
Lions are the best: they lay in the sun for hours, undisturbed by the jeeps of tourists that roam around them. Then, suddenly, they decide it's time for lunch and, well you don't want to be stared at like this by a lioness...
