Lake Natron :Is a salt lake located in northern Tanzania, close to the Kenyan border, in the eastern branch of Africa’s Great Rift Valley. The lake is fed by the Ewaso Ng’iro River but also by mineral-rich hot springs and is quite shallow, less than three meters (10 feet) deep, and varies in width depending on its water level, which changes due to high levels of evaporation, leaving high levels of salt and other minerals. The area area is dry and receives irregular rainfall. Temperatures in the lake can reach 50 degrees Celsius and depending on rainfall, the alkalinity can reach a pH of 9 to 10.5 (almost as alkaline as ammonia).

The area around the Lake Natron, salt lake is not inhabited but there is some herding and some seasonal cultivation. Threats to the salinity balance from increased fresh water influxes will come from more projected logging in Natron watersheds and a planned hydroelectric power plant on the Ewaso Ng’iro across the border in Kenya. Although development plans include construction of a dike at the north end of the lake to contain the fresh water, the threat of dilution to this breeding ground may still be serious. There is no formal protection.

Accommodation in Lake Natron

Lake Eyasi is a scenic lake at the base of a steep section of the Rift Valley escarpment just south of the Ngorongoro Crater. At first glimpse Lake Eyasi appears very similar to Lake Manyara, but in reality the absence of significant groundwater means that it is far less able to sustain serious game populations.

Few people visit the area, often because of lack of animals, but those who do generally come in search of the Hadzabe tribe, a fast-diminishing tribe of hunter-gatherers who inhabit the lakeside forest.

The Hadzabe still hunt in their ancient traditional way with bow and arrow and True Africa guests can join them on their hunt. If you like you can even stay the night and learn more about this amazing tribe and their traditions.

A major eruption took place in June 1917, which resulted in volcanic ash being deposited about 48 kilometres away.

A similar eruption took place for several months in 1926 and between July and December 1940, resulting in the ash being deposited as far as Loliondo, which is 100 kms away. Several minor eruptions of lava were observed in 1954, 1955, 1958 the early 1960s.

Mt Kilimanjaro, a tallest free Standing Mountain in the world with height of 5,886 m, regarded as the roof of Africa and its snow capped in center, located in North East of Tanzania, near the Kenya boarder.

Climbing Kilimanjaro is on many people’s list of lifetime achievements and around 22,000 climbers set out each year to conquer it, making it the most climbed mountain in the world.

Few things can compete with standing at the top of Kilimanjaro and gazing at the African continent.

Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in the world that you can simply walk up! None of the routes require mountaineering skills, specialized equipment, or even previous climbing experience.

Still, climbing to the Roof of Africa is physically and mentally demanding and should not be underestimated.

Altitude sickness can set in above 3,000 meters and there’s no prior indication as to who might suffer from it. It’s important to work closely with your guide and to listen to his advice. Porters carry gear and supplies up and down the mountain and cook all meals.

Kilimanjaro can be climbed at any time of the year, but the rainy seasons (April-May & November-December) make the forest more slippery and the summit might be blocked by snow.

Be prepared for climatic extremes, from rain in the forest, intense sun in the alpine desert and freezing temperatures at the summit. It’s essential to have warm clothes and a good sleeping bag.

At the summit, exhaustion fades away; as the sunrises above Kilimanjaro crater rim you know you have finally met this exhilarating African challenge.

Routes for climbing :

Marangu / Umbwe / Shira / Londros Route- which will take 5 days & 4 nights (depending on weather)

And another route -Machame Route – will take 6 days & 5 nights (depending on weather)
