The children at our school “Tumaini” is every year on a school trip, this year to Ngorongoro crater which is considered one of the 7 wonders of the world.
Ngorongoro used to be a very tall mountain and they think it was more than 5km tall but a big volcano eruption for thousands of years ago made it collapse and today it’s a big crater. The crater is 260km2 and 610m deep.
They have about 500.000 visitors from all over the world every year. It is located 1800m above sea level and is 160km from Arusha. The park has many different animals except giraffe and crocodiles as the giraffe can’t make the deep descent into the crater. This was a great adventure for the 200 children that were so lucky to join this trip. All my sponsor children was on the trip and had an experience for life.
Thank you so much to you for helping these children join this trip. They were all so excited to see lions lie in the shadows under another safari car. They were so close to the lions they felt they could reach out and touch them. Some of the younger children were scared and cried but were told they had to be totally quiet. The teachers were busy with all these children!
The children were very lucky as they saw so many animals. The teachers had been were busy to prepare for the trip, like they had to boil and cut 45 chickens that were part of the children’s lunch boxes. The children were just so happy because they got a lunch box and soda. They had meet at school at 4 am and only returned at 10pm so it was really a long day for them. They went in 4 busses.
