“Lake Natron, a beautiful salt and soda lake, home to millions of flamingos and surrounded by breathtaking views of Ol Doinyo Lengai!”
Lake Natron is a beautiful lake in the Arusha region of northern Tanzania and close to the Kenyan border. Situated at the base of the active volcano Ol Doinyo Lengai, and less than 3 meters deep, Lake Natron is home to 2.4 million flamingos.
Get away from it all and enjoy a relaxing day or two by the lake. Hike to the nearby waterfalls and go swimming, or spend a day with a local Maasai tribe. Drive down to the lake to watch the flamingos and if you are lucky, you can spot zebras as well.
