Tour Details

 Tanzania Trekking Packages– Oldoinyo Lengai Climbing Oldonyo Lengai (2870 (9650 ft) 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. Oldoinyo Lengai is the only active Sodium Carbonate Volcano in the world.

This trip will take you to Lake Natron to view the flamingo breeding center as well as taking you to the summit of this amazing volcano. This trip is 4 days long and is perfect to take either before or after a Kilimanjaro Climb.
