you're very lucky because there are only ~20 rhinos left in ngorongoro and you managed to see them very close. we managed to see only a couple of them few kilometers away - my 300mm lens wasnt enough so i have only tiny photos of rhinos. tracks are far from the places where they live because they may not have sex for ridiculous amount of time, like 3 years, after they've been stressed. so yeah great photos :) they must be very rare
