Remember Or Get To Know That:
Oldonyo Lengai is the Maasai â€˜Mountain of Godâ€™ and is an active volcano located on the Rift Valley escarpment near the border with Kenya. The climb is undertaken at night to avoid the crippling heat of the day and to witness the awesome sight of the sunrise over the Rift Valley. This is not an easy climb with scree patches, steep slopes and a sulphurous stench to accompany you but the views are outstanding and it is easy to understand why the volcano has a spiritual status.
Lake Natron is located at the base of Ol Doinyo Lengai and has a desolate and lunaresque beauty. Short walks take you to streams and waterfalls and there is good birdlife including flocks of flamingos.
