The Volcano Adventure Guide: Excellent information and background for anyone wishing to visit active volcanoes safely and enjoyably. The book presents guidelines to visiting 42 different volcanoes around the world.
The volcano continues to slowly erupt natrocarbonatite lava inside the deep pit crater of the 2007-08 cinder cone which occupies the active northern crater of Lengai volcano. We present a selection of aerial photos taken a few days ago by our friend Gian Schachenmann.
De vulkaan blijft actief, en produceren natrocarbonatite lava die langzaam de krater vult. Een kleine kegel van natrocarbonatite lava vormt zich aan de westkant van Lengai de krater, welke gevormd in 2008 tijdens een reeks gewelddadige explosies die vernietigd de voormalige bizarre krater terras vullen het noorden krater, beroemd om de bizarre "hornitos" van witte en grijze lava. ...
An explosive eruption from Tanzania's Ol Doinyo volcano in 1966. Explosive activity began in August 1966, near the end of an eruption beginning in 1960 that consisted of quiet emission of lava flows in the summit crater. Ash deposits from previous eruptions whiten the volcano's slopes like snow. (Photo by Gordon Davies, 1966 / courtesy of Celia Nyamweru, Kenyatta University).

Fred Belton's extensive website dedicated to Lengai. Fred visits Lengai (almost) every year and comes back with lots of information and observation about the volcano's activity. Extensive News, other links, expedition infos, photos.
Volcano Special Tours: We organize tours to particularly active volcanoes and during ongoing eruptions for extended observation time from various viewpoints. These trips, exclusively for very small groups, are often announced only at short notice and require fast travel and flexibility. Each trip is accompanied by a volcanologist from our team. Examples include: Kilauea (Hawai'i), Colima (Mexico), Krakatau and many others.
Raung volcano photos: One of the largest and most active volcanoes in East Java, rarely-visited and relatively unknown Raung became (in)famous during its recent eruption in 2015 when its frequent ash plumes forced the repeated closure of Bali's airport.
