2 DAYS: LAKE NATRON CAMPING SAFARI VIA LONGIDO

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

This 2 day excursion off the beaten path and away from the crowds is good way to start or end one safari. It starts with a 3 hour drive from Arusha to an authentic Maasai boma in Ketumbeine where you will spend your day with a Maasai family and  in late in the afternoon drive to the shores of Lake Natron for overnight in a camp.

You will wake up to a guided tour around the shores of Lake Natron – a fascinating eco-system which thrives in this harsh environment. The lake also supports a vast population of Spirulina, a blue-green algae with red pigments, on which the large population of Lesser Flamingos feed on. You will then be driven to explore Engare Sero waterfalls and drive back to Arusha later in the afternoon
