Ol Doinyo Lengai

In Maasai language Ol Doinyo Lengai means "Mountain of God". At 2,962m , it is an active volcano in the Great Rift Valley, South of Lake Natron, and is part of the volcanic system of the East African Rift. 


Climbing Oldoinyo Lengai

A number of people climb Oldoinyo Lengai each year. It is not a technical climb, but it is a very demanding and sometimes dangerously steep walk and scramble. You should be fit, strong and above all VERY determined. Everyone who has climbed has their own experience to tell and his or her own advice to give; here is Ours.

Oldoinyo Lengai lies in Tanzania and should be approached from the south (i.e. from Arusha and Mto wa Mbu Village) or (more difficult) from the west (from the Serengeti Plains, Crater Highlands, and Olduvai Gorge).
