Day 6: Lake Natron
Lake Natron is one of the most alkaline lakes in the world. Home to millions of tiny crustaceans, the lake is a haven for thousands of lesser flamingos and it is one of the most important flamingo breeding grounds on earth. The area around the lake is dry and desolate. The strangely beautiful landscape is the attraction in this area.
The lowest point of the Great Rift Valley in Tanzania and famous for a vast number of flamingos and other water birds due to its high concentrate of sodium carbonate, algae, and zooplankton. You can go for a hike up the NgareSero River which flows into the Lake. In contrast to the surrounding dry landscape, here you can find a small lush paradise.
Activities around Lake Natron
After breakfast, you visit Lake Natron to see the flamingos for which Lake Natron is famous. If you wish, you can walk at the lake shore in salty water. Visit Engaresero waterfalls or hike to Engare Sero rift wall for an exceptional view and experience. You will also have an opportunity to take a plunge into the lake if weather permits it. Return to camp for lunch before going out again either for a swim in the lake or further walking. If you would like, you can climb Oldonyo Lengai, an active volcano, at an extra charge.
