After a yummy breakfast you’ll set off for Lake Natron, a salt and Soda Lake cradled in part of the great East African Rift Valley.

You’ll arrive at the campsite in time for a delicious lunch and then you’ll take an afternoon stroll to the lake, where you could be delighted by a pink cloud of flamingoes; the lake is the only regular breeding ground in East Africa of around 2.5 million lesser flamingoes, who depend utterly on the lake and are therefore categorized as near threatened, despite their numbers. You’ll wander past salt marshes and freshwater wetlands and on to a sparkling waterfall. You’ll also get a chance to marvel at Oldoinyo Lengai (Mountain of God in Maa in the language of Maasai people), an active volcano* and if you’d like to climb it, we can add an extra day to your adventure to get you to the top!
