OL DOINYO LENGAI

Want An Adventurous Safari In Lake Natron? Scroll Down For Activity Details..

EXPLORATION & TREKKING OF OL DOINYO LENGAI BY LAKE NATRON

Ol Doinyo Lengai, the "Mountain of God," is a sacred site for the Maasai people who believe that the god Eng'ai dwells within the majestic landmark, triggering eruptions and drought when she is dissatisfied. The Maasai honor their God with a long pilgrimage to the mountain to celebrate her blessings of rain, cattle and children, and women who are unable to have children are taken to the mountain by elders to receive the Eng'ai's blessing of motherhood. The power of Ol Doinyo Lengai captures every safari visitor on a Great Rift Valley safari in Lake Natron. Since it was first described by German explorers at the end of the 19th century, the mountain has drawn thousands of climbers, geologists and photographers during their safari expeditions in Africa. Your trekking tour of Ol Doinyo Lengai with AfricanMecca takes you to the base of the 7650-foot summit that rises above the arid Rift Valley and dominates its landscape with eerie formations created by the unique natrocarbonatite flow in the previous eruptions. Every rugged trip to Ol Doinyo Lengai offers a once-in-a-lifetime geological journey through nature's own volcanic sculptures. When you include the Mountain of God in your adventure holidays to Tanzania, you should bring some essential items for your comfort and safety. The climb is quite challenging, though not compared to Mount Kilimanjaro and Meru, with the ascent on some parts crawling on hands and feet taking at least six hours and the descent taking at least four hours. Climbs up the mountain begin at night, so you should have a headlamp and wear layered clothing as the temperature rises during the day. Take the time during your climb to gaze at the stunning star-filled sky! Other items that you should bring for your climbing vacation to Tanzania are energy bars, climbing stick, gloves and hiking shoes that have a good grip.
