Menengai Crater is an extinct volcano with striking views of Lake Nakuru, Lake Bogoria as well as the crater itself.
Menengai Crater is a large Caldera formed by millions of years of
volcanic activities. The highest point, at some 2,300 m above sea
level, has a sign post erected by the rotary club that shows the
directions and distances to several places in the world.
has it that the Menengai Crater is home to many demons and ghosts and
so the crater is referred to as Kirima kis ngoma "the place of devils".
Since the 19th C, it has been the scene for battles.
A lovely little Tented Camp "Maili Saba" has been set up in 2006 with breathtaking views over the Crater.
