Ol doinyo Lengai (pronounced ol doyn-yo len-guy) is an Active Volcanic Mountain in the Eastern Rift Valley, and it is home to the Masai God Eng'ai, who signals her wrath with eruptions and drought. The name means 'Mountain of God' in the language of the Maasai people who inhabit this area. Ol doinyo Lengai is a unique and extremely fascinating volcano that towers above the East African Rift Valley in Northern Tanzania, just south of Lake Natron. It is located on the way between Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti and is part of many of our itineraries.
Geologists are particularly interested in Ol doinyo Lengai because It is the only volcano in the world that erupts natrocarbonatite lava, a highly fluid lava that contains almost no silicon. Oldoinyo Lengai is also the only active volcano in this part of the Rift Valley, though there are many older extinct volcanoes in this region. The mountain rises a startling 2,886 m/9,469 ft above the parched Rift Valley floor.
The Mountain is ideal for adventurous travelers who like to explore those unique areas in the world, such as photographers, trekkers and volcano lovers. Nevertheless Ol Doinyo Lengai is considered to be extremely hazardous and that safety cannot be assured. Trekking takes 1 day; though descending is tough' It is always done with combination with safari to Serengeti and Ngorongoro
It provides spectacular view of escarpment separating the Serengeti Plains from Lake Natron and the Rift Valley below.
