Lake Natron - Tanzania

Lake Natron is a salt and soda lake in Arusha, near the Kenyan border. The waters are warm, with natural hotsprings nearby. Ol Doinyo Lengai (”Mountain of God”) is an active volcano that overlooks the lake. The lake is a popular breeding ground for flamingos.

A really dangerous volcano with big and slippery slopes that can be beaten only by people in good shape or by those that are really determined like us. We needed a few days to recover completely 😄. This was a once in a lifetime experience that we will never forget.
