Where We Are
Lake Natron Camp is near the volcano, Ol Donyo Lengai, at the lowest point of the Great Rift Valley in East Africa at an altitude of 600m above sea level. Here, between the only active carbonatite volcano in the world, Oldonyo Lengai to the south, pinnacles of Mt Gelai to the east, the gorge etched escarpment of the Rift Valley to the west, and the mirror-surfaced lake, a sanctuary to millions of flamingos to the north, is the oasis adjacent to the soda flats where Lake Natron Camp lies.
From Arusha you can take 1 of 2 ways. Via MTO WA MBU (5 to 6 hours) or via LONGIDO (5 hours)… Depending on road and weather conditions. From Nairobi it is quicker to go via Longido. NOTE: the road is normally rough. Rain can make this a longer than published journey. Getting to Lake Natron is an adventure!
Ask Coastal Aviation for information and costs on how to get to us… or if you have a private plane, you can fly to Ngare Sero airstrip (ask us for coordinates). Ngare Sero airstrip is approx 15 minutes away from Camp.
IF you're feeling adventurous why not trek from Empakai, in the Ngorongoro Highlands, to Lake Natron on our epic Great Rift Valley Trek?
