Ngorongoro Crater is “stunning” on Tanzania safari holidays

The Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania has been described as "stunning" by one former English cricketer.

David Gower, who was brought up in the African country, stated he visited the location, along with the Serengeti and Lake Manyara, when he was six years old.

Those considering safari holidays in the nation may be encouraged by the batsman's comments as he said Ngorongoro is still a fabulous place.

He added: "I went back to that same area about a decade ago and it was fascinating trying to reconcile my memories aged six to the impression when you're substantially older."

What's more, Gower has also been on wildlife excursions in Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa.

And the latter could be an ideal location for a safari as James Cusick, writing for Herald Scotland, recently described seeing a slow-moving herd of elephants in the Kwandwe Game Reserve, as well as buffalo, zebras and cheetahs.
