The Ngare Sero River Gorge
Note: we can only offer this trek on special request if security conditions allow.
Overlooking Lake Natron from the south lies Mount Mosonik, a mass of volcanic
cliffs covered in bush and sparse acacias. Cutting deep into the side of the
mountain this unique gorge carries water from where it gushes out of the cliffs
in a grand amphitheatre down to Lake Natron. The Ngare Sero river brings life
to what would be otherwise a very inhospitable environment where temperatures
often soar into the forties.
The gorge itself can be followed with just some easy scrambling and a few
simple stream crossings to a fine waterfall and excellent pool for swimming
(allow 30 minutes from the Waterfall Camp). Beyond this point the gorge narrows
and only confident scramblers should continue. However for those with more
modest climbing abilities it is possible to gain the amphitheatre by taking a
higher path from the camp but which misses out the waterfall section. Allow 1h
