It takes around 5-9 days to complete the climb depending on the route chosen.

It is located in Arusha National Park and offers stunning views of the park’s wildlife and scenery. The climb usually takes 3-4 days, and it is also a non-technical hike.
  • Ol Doinyo Lengai: With a height of 2,878 meters, Ol Doinyo Lengai is an active volcano and is located in the Gregory Rift, south of Lake Natron.
