Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Pick up from Arusha and transfer by dirt road to the Masai walking near the Lake Natron. The final part of the drive is through fascinating scenery with mini-calderas punctuating the landscape. Spend a night Ngaresero camp site located at the base of the Great Rift Valley and next to the lesser flamingo lake, with the Ngorongoro Highlands above.

Day 2: Early morning short drive and walk to the shores of Lake Natron. Here you will see many flamingoes, and may be a jackal on the prowl for it's breakfast. After lunch there will be another short hike to Engaresero Waterfalls with a naturally formed, incredibly convenient Jacuzzi! Dinner will be early as it is important to get a few hours sleep, before being roused at 11.30pm to make the final preparations for the hike.

Day 3: At 12.00am leave the campsite and make the short drive to the base of Ol Doinyo L'Engai - and begin to climb the Mountain of the Gods. The path itself is quite difficult underfoot and steep the whole way. Towards the rim it turns into powdery ash - like trudging through deep soft snow! Arriving at the summit in time for sunrise, the perfect reward! This volcano is active and glowing rock can often be seen bubbling out of the numerous ash cones on the top. Descend late morning in time for a good lunch, dip in the stream and a celebratory beer! Overnight at the campsite.

Day 4: After a relaxing morning including an optional game drive to Lake Natron or swimming in the waterfall pools, transfer to Arusha. Or an optional to Tarangire national park at an additional $35 only, then drive back to Arusha

Airfare is not included in the tour price.

Price Excludes:
- Accommodation for first and last night in Arusha town
- Transfers from the airport (USD 60).
