WATERFALL

The Engare Sero river waterfall is a 30-45 minute walk from the campsite. A local guide is required to lead the way, following the river up the gorge, crossing back and forth several times. Leaving behind the arid steppes, you will find yourself in an oasis of waterfalls and palm trees. This is truly a remnant of paradise.

 

LAKE NATRON

 

Lake Natron lies in the Rift Valley of Northern Tanzania bordered by the Rift Valley escarpment, volcanoes: Ol Doinyo Gelai and Ol Doinyo Lengai, and the Kenya border. Home to a number of shore birds, it is the breeding ground of the Lesser Flamingo. Named after the high content of sodium carbonate decahydrate (natron), it’s high alkalinity can be caustic to animal life not adapted to it. As there is no outlet for the lake, the size varies by the seasonal rainfall. High rainfall expands the lake to approximately 35 miles in length by 14 miles in width with a depth of less than 10 feet. A number of hot springs feed into the lake, home to the tiny alkaline tilapia fish. Access to the Lake from World View Campsite is a short drive by Land Rover or an arranged hike by the local Maasai guides.

 

FOOTPRINTS

 

About a 15 minute Land Rover drive from the campsite will bring you to reportedly the oldest human footprints preserved in the volcanic ash near Lake Natron. These footprints were discovered by a local Maasai herder in 2006. In 2009, a scientific research team was organized to investigate these ancient human trails and noted that they may be dated around 120,000 years ago making them the oldest known human traces of pedal passage.
