LeNgai ("Mountain of God")
Oldonyo LeNgai (3450 meters) is an active volcano on the southern
shore of Lake Natron. This impressive peak is revered by the Maasai
as the sacred home of God. A nearly perfect cone, it still erupts occasionally
and you may have the opportunity 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.

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. This trip
