Day 2: Lake Natron / Ol Doinyo Lengai

Lake Natron is one of the most alkaline lakes in the world. Home to millions of tiny crustaceans, the lake is a haven for literally thousands of flamingos and it is one of the most important flamingo breeding grounds on earth. It is the landscape rather than the animals that is the attraction here, the area around the lake is dry, desolate and hauntingly beautiful.

After breakfast, you will walk out across the baked mud to the shores of the great Soda Lake. From here, you can look back at the memorable view of Oldoinyo Lengai standing tall amongst the rolling hills and flat plains. Its ash-gray color will remind you that this is still an active volcano.

You will return to camp in time for lunch and a leisurely afternoon before enjoying an early dinner and retiring to your tent for some rest.

At approximately 11pm, you will wake up with tea or coffee and a light snack before meeting your Mountain Guide and beginning your trek into the night.

  • Overnight – Full Service Camping, Lake Natron
  • Upgrade Your Accommodation – Moivaro Tented Camp, Lake Natron or similar camp or similar tented camps.

Day 3: Ol Doinyo Lengai

Your climb will continue into the early hours of the morning before reaching the summit in time to witness the sunrise as it illuminates the Great Rift Valley below. The views are breathtaking. To the north, you will see the salt flats of Lake Natron and in the distance, the Kenyan border. To the east, you will see Mount Kilimanjaro and the Great Rift Valley and to the south stretches the Ngorongoro Highlands and Ngorongoro Crater.

Together with your Guide, you will explore the peak and enjoy a picnic breakfast before beginning your climb down the mountain where you will be welcomed back with lunch before returning to Arusha where your safari ends upon arrival.
