Her spectacular snow- capped peaks create a stunning backdrop all year- round, and are crowned to be the only snow- blessed point on the equator. Africa's most stunning mountain treasures sweeping valleys infused with jeweled streams and lucent- colored birds who will befriend you on sight.

Mount Longonot is a stratovolcano located southeast of Lake Naivasha in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya, Africa. It is thought to have last erupted in the 1860s. Its name is derived from the Maasai word oloonong'ot, meaning "mountains of many spurs" or "steep ridges". A trail runs from the park entrance up to the crater rim, and continues in a loop encircling the crater.

At a height of 4,565 metres (14,977 ft), it is visible from Mt Kilimanjaro on a clear day, and is the tenth highest mountain in Africa. Mount Meru is the topographic centerpiece of Arusha National Park.

"Ol Doinyo Lengai" means "The Mountain of God" in the Maasai language of the native people. The record of eruptions on the mountain dates to 1883, and flows were also recorded between 1904 and 1910 and again between 1913 and 1915. A major eruption took place in June 1917, which resulted in volcanic ash being deposited about 48 kilometres away.
