Mount Oldoinyo Le Ngai is located in northern part of Tanzania. “Oldoinyo Le Ngai” is a Maasai term meaning “Mountain of God”. This mountain is the only active volcano in East Africa. Volcanic activity on the mountain has been observed from as far back as 1883, and it is still active today. The Oldoinyo Le Ngai mountain reaches a height of approximately 9442 feet. The Crater Highlands are part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. This is a reserve where the local communities live alongside the wildlife. The highlands consist of a range of Volcanoes-not all extinct-rising steeply from the side of the Great Rift Valley in Northern Tanzania. Hence they are more than JUST the Ngorongoro Crater with a number of impressive peaks, with steep escarpments, crater lakes, dense forests and grassy ridges, streams and waterfalls. The volcano of Ol-Doinyo-Lengai (2878m) is even active! It is also home to many Maasai people who have grazed cattle on the grasslands here for hundreds of years. Most walking is done at around the 3000mts mark. There are many options though available to the adventurous. Spend your day through visiting some historical area around with full evening lake shore walking.

Things To Pack,

For Oldoinyo Lengai trekking you can use our ultimate Lengai packing mentioned list as a guide for what to bring along while you’re hiking to the Roof of Africa. We’ve packed this Meru trekking Packing List with our trail tested favorites and recommendations, plus lots of useful info on the best gear for adventuring in all of Oldoinyo Lengai conditions during trekking moments.

Trekking Poles

These are MANDATORY, and a life (and knee) saver on tricky terrain. Make sure they are collapsible, for easy stashing, and simple to adjust for up and downhill.

Polarized Sunglasses

You have to protect your eyes from the fierce equatorial sun! Make sure they are UV-blocking and polarized

Insulate Jacket

This will keep you warm as you reach higher elevations when the temperature drops and will be especially important on summit night. When layering, this jacket will go over your medium layers but under your outer layer jacket. An insulated jacket will give you an extra layer of warmth when you need it most. If you tend to get cold fast you might want a thicker insulated jacket. You know your body best, but we can’t emphasize enough how cold it can get.

Head Lamp

This is important for after the sun sets, and on summit night when we’re hiking through the night. Be sure to start the trek with fresh batteries, and bring a spare set just in case.

Insect Repellent

One of the challenges of going on safari are the insects. We recommend bringing a good one with no bad smell to apply each day to help prevent insect bites.

Hiking Pant

Bring the best hiking pants which offers comfort, freedom of movement, the versatility to perform well in a range of environments, and durability over the long haul.

Water Bladder

Staying hydrated is so important while hiking at high altitudes! We highly recommend getting a 3 L water bladder with an insulated tube and cap. It’s the easiest way to carry and drink water while trekking.

Hiking Boot

The most important thing you’ll bring! Make sure they are Gore-Tex, have ankle support, and that you’ve broken them in well.


There are so many amazing photo ops! We highly recommend bringing a camera that is compact and durable. Have great cameras, and we’ve found DSLRs can be cumbersome while trekking, so think twice before bringing anything too fancy. Remember to always pack your electronics in waterproof bags or cases.
