Four Days Ol Doinyo Lengai Hiking

Ol'donyo Lengai Over View

Oldoinyo Lengai is in the Lake Natron area in the north of Tanzania, right on the Kenyan border and extremely off the beaten track. The drive to Lake Natron, with the imposing volcano Oldoinyo Lengai in the background is surreal and breathtaking. The landscape has been pock-marked with volcanic activity; mini calderas and the great Rift Valley punctuate the horizon. After settling in to camp at the foot of the slopes of Oldoinyo Lengai and stretching your legs we recommend that you venture up to the nearby waterfalls for a refreshing swim.

Day 1: Arusha - Lake Natron (Ngare Sero)

Departing Arusha in the morning you drive to Mtu-wa Mbu (Lake Manyara) for lunch. After lunch you drive north along the bottom of the Great Rift Valley wall to Lake Natron and the village of Ngare Sero at the base of Ol Doinyo Lengai. Overnight at a campsite by the lake.

Day 2: Lake Natron - Ngare Sero - Ol Doinyo Lengai

From Lake Natron to Ngare Sero is a 3-hour walk. Lengai is best approached from the west. Between Ngare Sero and Lengai's lower slopes is another 3 hours walk. The vehicle will go o­n ahead here so that it is there to take you up this large gully and so saving you at least 6 hours of walking. Overnight camp in the gully.

Day 3: Ol Doinyo Lengai summit and back to Lake Natron campsite

A very early start in order to gain as much height as possible in the cool of the morning. Sun hats and a large water in-take are essential. Descend by the same route. Great care should be taken o­n the way down: loose volcanic gravel o­n bare rock makes it perilous going in places. Overnight at the Lake Natron camp site.

Day 4 - Lake Natron - Arusha Town Departing after breakfast you drive back to Arusha town. Drop-off.
