OLMOTI AND EMBAKAAI CRATERS: The rim of Olmoti Crater is at 3700 meters but the crater itself is rather shallow. Olmoti Crater is home to bushbuck, eland and occasional buffalo, Maasai and their livestock.
Water flows across the crater to the south part into a relatively small but splendid waterfall known as Munge. Both craters are reachable on foot, but visitors must be accompanied by armed guides.
This extraordinary black dune which is composed of volcanic ash from Ol'doinyo Lenkai is blown slowly westwards across the plains at the rate of approximately 100 meters in six years.
