If you have never been on a safari, I highly recommend for you to go to Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. I'm native to West Africa and we unfortunately don't have the Safari's or the scenic mountains East Africa have. I was astonished to see once a mountain, a crater with 30,000 animals stuck within it, it reminded me of Jurassic Park the movie.
Just getting to Ngorongoro is a adventure in itself, you drive through many towns and villages to a top elevation of about 6000 ft sea level. To reach the Ngorongoro crater you have to travel about 2000 ft down to reach the floor, reaching the floor are about 30,000 animals living and evolving.
