Day 11: Lengai - Natron

Breakfast at the rooftop of Oldoinyo Lengai. Since the late 1980s, activity at Ol Doinyo Lengai has been witnessed by many observers. The activity is usually centered in one or more of the small cones that have been formed on the crater floor by previous eruptions of lava. Eruptions have typically taken the form of open lava pools or lakes that may or may not be overflowing, lava flows issuing from holes or cracks inside or near the base of the cones, or lava splashes or fountains from the summit vents of the cones. The activity is not well understood but is thought to be a function of the plumbing of the crater, the level of the lava within the plumbing, and the gas content of the lava.

No one knows what causes the lava to flow out at any particular time or how the various vents in the crater are interconnected. Mineralogists would like to understand how the lava evolves under the surface and why it has its unusual chemical composition, but that also is unknown.

Dinner & Overnight at: Natron Campsite
