Why Lake Natron should be on your Bucketlist

Lake Natron is one of the most unusual places to visit in East Africa. Lying on the border of Kenya and Tanzania the lake changes colours as the seasons of the year change. East Africa is home to 1.5-2.5 million Lesser Flamingos. This represents three-quarters of the world population and majority hatch at Lake Natron. The lake is beautiful and undisturbed.
You can take a walk around the lake or visit the nearby streams that drain into the lake. A stone throw away is the Ngare Sero gorge that offers a pleasant walk to the waterfalls where you can swim. Ngare Sero is the base for climbing ol Doinyo Lengai, a unique active volcano. The name means “mountain of God” thanks to its active status. It is the only active volcano in East Africa and offers sweeping views of the Rift Valley below.

Expedition Itinerary

Day One: Nairobi – Lake Natron (Summit Night)

Leave from Nairobi early by shuttle and drive south via Kajiado to the Namanga border post. After the immigration process we meet our local guide/driver and board the Land Cruiser. The drive is adventurous through the plains north of Arusha to arrive at the village in time for lunch. Enjoy a walk to the lake and streams as you await sunset. Dinner and overnight at the tented camp.

Day Two: Ol Doinyo Lengai Climb and Waterfall Chase

For the hikers, rest after early dinner in preparation for the climb. Wake up at 1.00am and drive to the base of the mountain. The trek up the 6km with an elevation of 1,650m will take the better part of the night. You arrive at the summit in time for sunrise before descending back to camp for shower and breakfast.Later in the day take a walk to the Ngare Sero gorge. The nice streams and waterfalls will be at hand to swim and relax.
