To count one an hour to go then two hours on the spot and another hour for the return.
Start at the camp and follow the trail. Cross the village and continue. Finally you arrive at the hot springs.
There, the water is at 40 ° C minimum and it boils in some places. There are magnificent heaps of yellow sulfur that form near the holes through which the gases escape. As Lake Natron is close to the only volcano in the world to emit natrocarbonate lavas and erosion has changed the lavas into clay and salt, the lake's water is super-salty.

We also see cormorants, ibis ...
It's really worth it to go!
