“To see a sunrise in Africa is something very special. To see a sunrise in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is as if you are witnessing the Creation. Looking down into the Ngorongoro Crater and seeing all these beautiful animals calmly grazing made me realize what Paradise must have looked like. At first there is no sound at all; the whole spectrum of colors in a continuous passing scene of landscape and clouds. Then, at precisely 6:30 am, birds begin to sing. The experience is now complete.”
