“Worth the drive up the hill, most interesting”
Review of Menengai Crater

Menengai Crater
Ranked #1 of 8 things to do in Nakuru
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 March 2017

This place is unique, a large volcanic crater, with steam escaping in places, excellent view and a little markets with touristy stuff. I also noticed a thick volcanic ash (tuff) deposit in the road cuttings and small quaries on the way up, probably from this crater, or indeed a nearby one. Well worth the visit.

It is easy to miss this hole in the ground when you drive close by, but it is well worth a trip up the dusty track to look down into this huge crater. A range of tourist shops at the top.

We went with Chrysolyte Tours and Travels from Nairobi on a two day trip. They helped us organise a great trip to Nakuru Lake game reserve. We stayed at Nakuru Lake Lodge which was a wonderful place to stay.

We saw scores of animals including flamingo pelicans rhino zebra antilopes and lots of buffalos and giraffes.

The driver was very helpful and competent.

This is something we can really reccomend.

Thank Herbert S
