Two and a half million years ago the top blew off the volcanic mountain of Ngorongoro in what is today Northern Tanzania, leaving behind a crater vast enough to create its own climate. Over the millennia it has become a natural wildlife conservation park. In Ngorongoro, the animals are so unused to man that, for the most part, they ignored Kunkel and his cameras, enabling him, over a period of five years, to capture every major species and many minor ones, in close-up and long-shot. Some of the animals he photographs, in individual images and in sequence, are: elephants, rhinoceroses, hippos, lions, hyenas, servals, buffaloes, wildebeeste, antelopes, apes, monkeys, eagles, vultures, flamingoes, pythons and puff-adders. Reinhard Kunkel is the author of "Elephants".
