Trekking Oldonyo Lengai during Safari

Trekking Oldonyo Lengai during Safari

Oldonyo Lengai Trekking: OlDonyoLengai is referred to by the Maasai individuals as the “Mountain of God”, OlDoinyoLengai is absolutely dynamite. Rising gloriously from the Great Rift Valley floor to the tallness of 2890m, OlDoinyoLengai is the central dynamic fountain of liquid magma on a planet that ejects carbonatite magma. This sort of magma is remarkable because temperatures of these magmas are just around 500°C, about a large portion of the temperature of typical basalt magmas, and its magma streams with a consistency nearly as liquid as water.

Others portray Oldonyolengai Trekking as an experimentally valuable, geochemical place of worship; Oldonyo lengai is a significant physically requesting ascension. Its precarious incline makes it a test to scale just as to move down, and the daytime heat is unendurable. The best time to ascend the mountain is during the evening when the temperatures are lower. 

This enables the climber to observe the stunning dawn at the summit and return before the scorching warmth kicks in. Contact us for Oldonyolengai Trekking.

Oldonyolengai is very steep and will take you about 6 hours to summit. However, it is well worth the hike and the midnight start time! Do your homework beforehand and make sure you will be prepared with a headlamp, jacket, gloves (highly recommend for the climb), and some comfy hiking boots. The hike down is honestly the hard part and takes the same amount of time as the hike up. You’ll get back to your car around noon. Very happy after you did this hike. It was something different than just going to Africa for the animals, the best part of your trip!

We enjoy a picnic lunch in this area, consisting of open grassy areas, hot springs, dense woodlands, and steep mountainsides.

              DAY 2: GAME DRIVE IN NGORONGORO CRATER.

              We start the day with an early morning game drive before heading to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Ngorongoro is a special place in that it is a Conservation Area, not a National Park; this means that the whole area is managed for both the animals and the local Masai people who graze their cattle alongside the indigenous wildlife. During the drive-in Ngorongoro, we have a chance to glimpse something of the Masai way of life. After stopping at the entrance gate, where there is a chance to learn more about this fascinating volcanic landscape, we will drive around the rim of the Crater itself, and from here, we can look down and see the herd of wildebeest or buffalos. Finally, we descend into the Crater. The crater walls provide a natural sanctuary for the animals, which means there is plenty to see: lions, elephants, buffalo, rhino, and leopard (if you are lucky). The only animal you won’t see here is a giraffe, whose long legs cannot cope with the steeps sides of the Crater. In the late afternoon, we travel back to our budget campsite.

Afterwards, we visit the most famous wildlife sanctuary in the world – Serengeti National Park. The word ‘Serengeti’ means ‘endless plains’, which describes the park’s 5,600 square mile boundary. Yet, for its sprawling area, the Serengeti does not disappoint when it comes to rich game-viewing. The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest on earth. Dinner and overnight at Seronera campsite: Bed, dinner, breakfast, and lunch.

              DAY 4: ANOTHER FULL DAY GAME DRIVE IN SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK.

              We embark on an encore game drive in the expansive Serengeti National Park. You can add an optional hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti for $599 per person. The Serengeti boasts one of the most varied collections of wildlife on the planet. Annually, from May to December, millions of animals embark on a migration, bringing them from central Serengeti to Kenya’s Masai Mara and back again in an incredible spectacle. Even during the ‘down-time’, vast herds of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle roam here, along with groups of elephant, giraffe, and buffalo, as the lions, leopard, cheetah, hyenas, and jackals stalk their meals.

              Dinner and overnight at Seronera campsite: Bed, dinner, breakfast, and lunch.

              DAY 5: GAME DRIVE IN SERENGETI VIA NGORONGORO TARANGIRE.

              Today you’ll experience the culture and traditions of the local Maasai on the way from Serengeti to Tarangire National Park.

              Dinner and overnight at the campsite: Bed, dinner, breakfast, and lunch.

              DAY 6: GAME DRIVE IN TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK.

              Dinner and overnight in Tarangire at the campsite: Bed, dinner, breakfast, and lunch.

              DAY 7: GAME DRIVE IN TARANGIRE VIA ARUSHA TO THE AIRPORT.

              We begin early before the sun rises at 6:00 am this morning. We will view animals from 6:00 am until 8:30 am, which is considered prime viewing time.
