Lake Natron West Game Control Area

The opportunity to hunt both these great concessions in one hunt offers you not only the widest selection of Masai species anybody can offer, but also offers good trophy quality and availability of game while enjoying the most stunning landscapes. You get to hunt out of all 3 camps namely; Lengai, Longido and Pinini, each with its distinctly different setting, vegetation, terrain and game, making your trip an even more spectacular and richer experience.

Lake Natron West starts at the top of the Great Rift Valley bordering the Ngorongoro Crater highlands, and drops into the spectacular open plains dotted with plains game and dominated by the towering “O’ldonyo Lengai” (the legendary Masai "Mountain of God"). This still active volcano stands next to “Kiserian”, which is another striking volcano. From there, the concession descends over undulating plains to the shores of Lake Natron, a soda lake teeming with flamingoes. It then runs along the western shores all the way to the Kenyan border. This concession is so awesome it's a real bonus for a non-hunting participant as well. 

From spectacular viewing points, magnificent waterfalls, dramatic rift valley escarpment, rich local culture, fossilized footprints, multitude of volcanoes and volcanic features, to endless undulating plains, barren soda flats and the lake filled with pink Flamingos.
