Lake Natron & Oldoinyo Lengai

A breathtaking place, Reviewed to be the calmest place anyone could visit in the Northern Tanzania Safari Circuit . About five (5) to six (6) hour drive from Arusha, a challenging trip, with some amazing landscape scenarios.  travelers drive through the Lake Natron Game Control Area to Engarasero, the Masai village that host Lake Natron & Oldoinyo Lengai.

Oldoinyo Lengai which means “The Mountain of God” in the Maasai language, on which it then describes how unique this area is. The summit of this strato-volcano is 2962 metres above sea level, and affords direct views into the caldera of Tanzania’s only officially-certified active volcano, and the world’s only carbonatite volcano. Surrounded by Masai communities, Waterfalls & high mountain ridges stretching to Ngorongoro highlands.

Complemented by Lake Natron, a mythical soda lake at the base of the active Oldoinyo Lengai volcano, often described as having a desolate and almost lunar beauty. Like being in a Landscape wonder dream. With over 1.5-2.5 million Lesser Flamingos, representing three-quarters of the world population of which most of them hatch at Lake Natron.  Food is plentiful, nesting sites abound – and above all, the lake is isolated and undisturbed. Making it perfect for bird watching.  The lake and its ecosystem provides a source of livelihoods to the local communities.
