View one of the biggest calderas in the world at Menengai Crater, the largest volcano caldera in Kenya and second largest in Africa. Hike to the top of the 8 km by 12 km (5 mi by 7.5 mi) crater for views of surrounding lakes and of the volcano itself, then follow a trail down to the crater floor to find natural caves. Farmlands cover the base of the volcano, where you can find old lava flows. Many recommend visiting during sunset to capture the scene in photos. Using our custom trip planner, Nakuru attractions like Menengai Crater can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
