MT. OLDONYO-LENGAI

Ol doinyo Lengai with the height about 2,878 meters above sea level is an active volcano in the Northern Tanzania on the southern shore of Lake Natron. This impressive peak is respected by the Maasai as the holy home of God. A nearly ideal cone, it still erupts irregularly and you may have the chance to walk on still-steaming new ground. It is a tough drive about 3 hours off the main road between Arusha and Ngorongoro. Once at camp, you can go to a waterfall and relax in the river, or drive out to the shoreline of Lake Natron and see the massive flamingo colonies wading in the shallows.

Oldoinyo Lengai is the only active Sodium Carbonite Volcano in the world. This trip will take you to Lake Natron to view the flamingo breeding centre as well as taking you to the summit of this amazing volcano.
