Lake Natron

Lake Natron

 

Lake Natron is a wild and remote area which lies in the North part of Tanzania between the Ngorongoro Highlands and Serengeti Plains. The area situated at the base of Africa active volcano mountain so called “Oldonyo Lengai” also known as Mountain of God.

Lake Natron is one of the most alkaline lakes in the world. Home to millions of tiny crustaceans, the lake is a haven for literally thousands of lesser flamingo's and it is one of the most important flamingo breeding grounds on earth.

 

Because the area around Lake Natron is dry and desolate, the primary attraction is its landscapes and not the wildlife.

 

Also there are a myriad of activities to partake during the day, dusk, dawn and even at night. You may walk on the soda flats beside the lake, see wildlife, trek to waterfalls at the Engare Sero River, view or even climb the volcano, Oldoinyo Lengai mountain, and many other amazing sights on foot!
