Lake Natron

One of the most original landscapes in East Africa is the area around the Lake soda: home of the Maasai, which live here still in traditional way and are hardly influenced of the modern culture. It is the home for millions of birds, too, and therefor interesting for bird watching. Because this landscape is so inaccessible, it did not need to be particularly protected: it is under no protection of a national park administration.

But the area offers more attractions including a river walk with two waterfalls, a hike across the soda lake with flamingos, where giraffes and other animals are often seen. A trek up Oldonyio Lengai, an active volcano, is one of the higlights of an adventures Safari: Oldonyio Lengai is located in the heart of the Great Rift Valley and has erupted fifteen times in the past century. A challenging hike to the top of the "Mountain of God" offers an opportunity to view molten lava. From there you have great views of the surrounding landscapes.
