Menengai Crater an extinct volcano is located on the floor of the Rift Valley. It’s considered one of the best preserved Krakatau-style calderas in the world. The volcano was formed about 200,000 years ago with the growth of a 30 cubic km volume lava shield. The main viewpoint gives you a 270° view of the caldera and Rift valley. Menengai has very little sediment in the caldera which is a thick mass of lava boulders and inaccessible ridges.

The Crater is believed to be a very spiritual place and people come from far and wide to spend time praying, contemplating and those who have spent time here say they have felt the presence of God.

This site offers excellent scenic views of Lake Nakuru, Lake Bogoria, Mount Longonot as well as the Crater itself. The depth of the crater is 485m; Diameter of the Caldera is 12km wide and 2,278 m above sea level.

It’s regarded as a hiker’s haven and the view from the top of this crater is breathtaking. As soon as you get to the peak, you immediately forget the demanding trek up in the scotching sun.

After enjoying your picnic lunch and conquering the challenge, we will embark on our journey back to Nairobi expected time of arrival is 1830hrs local time.
