Maasai Boma visits, Ngaresero gorge and waterfalls and participating in Maasai festivals
Oldoinyo Lengai sits within an extremely feature-rich safari destination in northern Tanzania. Visitors to this area are well advised to take advantage of the proximity of access to a range of fascinating attractions and sites.
“Oldoinyo Lengai” means “The Mountain of God” in the Maasai language. The summit of this strato-volcano is 2962 metres above sea level, and affords direct views into the caldera of Tanzania’s only officially-certified active volcano, and the world’s only carbonatite volcano; records of eruptions have been maintained since 1883, the largest of which deposited ash 100 kilometres away in Loliondo on the Kenyan border to the north west.
Ol Doinyo(oldonyo) Lengai is an active volcano located in Arusha Region, Tanzania and is part of the volcanic system of the East African Rift. It is located in the eastern Rift Valley, or Gregory Rift, south of both Lake Natron and Kenya. It is unique among active volcanoes in that it produces natrocarbonatite lava, a unique occurrence of volcanic carbonatite. A few older extinct carbonatite volcanoes are located nearby, including Homa Mountain.
