Upon your arrival at Kilimanjaro airport, our representative will meet you and drive you to your first evening in Tanzania.   Arusha is a major international diplomatic hub. The city hosts and is regarded as the de facto capital of the East African Community.  Arusha is surrounded by some of Africa’s most famous landscapes and national parks. Situated below Mount Meru on the eastern edge of the eastern branch of the Great Rift Valley, it has a mild climate.

Our driver guide will pick you up from your hotel in Arusha and you will drive out to Lake Natron. En route you see many Maasai villages, gazelles, giraffes, zebras, baboons, bee boxes, and birds such as vultures, ostriches, glossy starlings, cory bustards, and kites. After checking in at your campsite and having some lunch, you will go on a guided walk around Lake Natron, the lowest point of the Great Rift Valley in Tanzania and famous for a vast numbers of flamingos and other water birds due to its high concentrate of sodium carbonate, algae, and zooplankton. You can go for a hike up the Ngare Sero River which flows into the Lake. In contrast to the surrounding dry landscape, here you can find a small lush paradise.


Lake Natron is one of the most alkaline lakes in the world. Home to millions of tiny crustaceans, the lake is a haven for thousands of lesser flamingos and it is one of the most important flamingo breeding grounds on earth.  The area around the lake is dry and desolate.  The strangely beautiful landscape is the attraction in this area. After a strenuous walk up the stream, we reach the source of the river in the cascading waterfalls that gush out of the mountains. It is an excellent swim in the river and under the waterfalls for a nice cool-down from the hot sun. There may be baboons or other wildlife in the gorge. You will then return to camp for dinner. Enjoy your meals under the stars before retiring for the night.


Overnight at public campsite: This is an open space ground where anyone is permitted to set up camp. Your camp crew will help you set up your dome tents which are small, comfortable tents with ground mattresses and sleeping pads for your comfort. Meals will be under the stars and your cook will prepare you sumptuous meals that can be enjoyed while relaxing in the open air. The campsites usually have bathroom facilities with running water and our cook will gladly warm you water to bath and clean up.


Day 3: Activities around Lake Natron


After breakfast, you visit Lake Natron to see the flamingos for which Lake Natron is famous. If you wish, you can walk at the lake shore in salty water. Visit Engaresero waterfalls or hike to Engare Sero rift wall for an exceptional view and experience. You will also have an opportunity to take a plunge into the lake if weather permits it. Return to camp for lunch before going out again either for a swim in the lake or further walking. If you would like, you can climb Oldonyo Lengai, an active volcano, at an extra charge. This is a strenuous climb that usually departs at midnight and takes you to the ash cone for a magnificent view before descending back to the base and transferring back to the camp for a rest.
