Oldoinyo Lengai 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. Oldoinyo Lengai is active volcanic mountains. 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.
Many tourists visit and climb this mountain which is located in Northern Tanzania every year. One should not underestimate this 9,442 feet high mountain, as it needs much determination to climb because of the steep walking. However, climbing Oldoinyo Lengai (The mountain of God) doesn't require technical skills to get to the peak.
