Well this blog entry is also a journal entry from ngorogoro. At kirurumu we saw cheetah, lion (male and female) vervet monkeys, baboons, giraffe, crocs, Hippos, and many other animals.
 It was a tented camp by Nduto. There at kirurumu there were flamingos in the lake that was 1kilometer away. We were there for 3 nights and 1 of the days it was raining. The staff was very nice and all of the sodas were free. At that lodge I had a lot of fun and saw a lot of animals and had a good time.
For this next part I will write in the journal entry from the crater.
  Today is our first full day at the crater. It's very dark so I can't see. It's about 6:05 a.m. And we had to wake up at 5:10 a.m. Our camp is on the crater's ridge at about 7700 feet. Right now were driving down the crater. It's very foggy and dewy and most of the trip down is 20% grade. We're driving in a landrover that has a extended top.
