4 Days Oldonyo Lengai Trekking

4 Day Walking Safari With Oldonyo Lengai Treks requires 4-5 hours which is moderate exertion, the ascent is quite difficult and challenging because the mountain is very steep and climbers are exposed to the hot sun as there is almost not any shade.

The best time to climb the mountain is early in the morning before the sun gets too hot, Herds of zebra and wildebeest can sometimes be seen on the trip. A trip to the mountain can also cover other nearby areas of interest like Lake Natron, which is a breeding ground for all East African flamingoes and other birds. There are several Maasai bomas (villages) which can be visited on additional cost just talk to your driver guide if you are interested and one can also visit the nearby Mount Gelai which has geysers and a brilliant waterfall.

  • Departing Arusha in the morning drive to Mto-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 Oldonyo Lengai. Overnight at a campsite by the lake.
