Things to do there
Lake Natron is home to large colonies of pink flamingos which nest on its shores, laying their eggs in the muddy shallows. From a distance, the thousands, even hundreds of thousands of flamingoes create the illusion of a pink lake.
This remote area is also home to a large Maasai community. ThisTanzanian tribe has remained close to their ancient culture, continuing to herd cattle and depend on their natural surroundings for survival. Visitors will see Maasai men, women and children dressed in vibrant traditional clothes, shimmering in handmade jewelry and performing the cultural dance, which is an impressive vertical leap.
Here is a special place, unique even within Tanzania. For the traveler who wishes to embrace the power of nature at the volcano Ol Doinyo Lengai, the culture-enthusiast who is brave enough to dance with the Maasai, or the photographer who captures the hues of nature in a flying crowd of flamingoes; Lake Natron has something for everyone.
