More pictures of Ngorongoro wildlife.

One picture is taken at the Grzimek Monument. Bernhard Grzimek is most famous for the work he undertook for the conservation of the Serengeti. He spent several years studying the wildlife there along with his son Michael. In 1959 Michael was killed in an aircrash. He was buried the same day on the top of the Ngorongoro Crater. Later the government of Tanzania erected a stone pyramid (the monument) over his grave. Bernhard Grzimek was buried there after his death in 1987 as well.
Bernhard Grzimek wrote a best-selling book called Serengeti shall not die, which appealed enormously to the public and was key in driving the creation of the Serengeti National Park.
