Empakai Crater Hike
Hiking through forested hills that come to some 300 metres above the crater floor, you'll be rewarded with an absolutely stunning view when you reach the top.
Empakai Crater offers unparalleled views of Ol Doinyo Lengai, a still active volcano. There's also the opportunity to see Lake Natron, the Great Rift Valley, and even distant Mount Kilimanjaro on a clear day.
You'll then trek down into the crater itself towards the shores of Empakai Lake, where you'll see animals such as bushbucks, buffaloes, waterbucks, elands, and countless different species of bird.
Taking a picnic within the park offers you the chance to soak in its utter tranquility before you hike back to the car
