Dear guests, please inquire before booking. We need to confirm availability and permits. This is a very special chance for you to join me on one of the most intense climbs in Africa. Ol Doinyo Lengai is, in my culture, the mountain of God. We Maasai believe that God lives on top of this volcano and that when it erupts, which it does roughly every 10 years, it is a sign that God is unhappy with what is going on with us humans. Climbing the mountain usually takes about 15 hours and we start the climb in the middle of the night so that we can summit in the morning before it gets too hot. Ol Doinyo Lengai is an active volcano in northern Tanzania. It is part of the volcanic system of the East African Rift and it uniquely produces natrocarbonatite lava. The mountain is a few meters short of 3000 m and when you manage to summit, you are welcomed by a massive lava crater and views across Lake Natron, the savanna into Kenya and to Ngorongoro and on a clear day, Kilimanjaro. The climb is intense, the route is rough and do not be too disappointed if you do not make it, we can spend the day at Lake Natron instead. Very few people apart from Maasai like myself climb this mountain. We rest at the adjacent tented camp on the evening of our climb return here for the next night, also giving us a chance to explore the eerie Lake Natron. Deadly lake waters turn birds to stone.
Hi, I am your guide and East African Director at Safarisource. I am a Maasai elder from Ngorongoro with more than 15 years of experience in the safari industry and in conservation. Talk to me about culture and wildlife, challenge me to recognize any East African bird by the shape of its shadow and ask me anything about accounting, my third passion is crunching numbers ;) I was given the opportunity to study in high school and in higher education through a scholarship. I studied accounting but then felt I had to reconnect with my Ngorongoro roots more and so I also studied wildlife management. Now I try to give back to my community and my foundation supports Maasai and Datoga children from Ngorongoro to pursuit an education. My safaris will give you an insiders access to wildlife but will also immerse you in my culture.
