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 30min.
