Kilimamoto or Snake Crater

Yesterday we went on a walk up a very steep hill to look at a hidden treasure. Don took us.
It is located just off the Arusha\Nairobi road, just past Ngaramtoni.

At the top of the hill we got such a big surprise. There was a huge volcanic crater, known as Snake Crater.

The views were amazing.

As with anywhere you stop in Tanzania, children appear from nowhere to look at the wazungu.
Don had brought a bag of lollies (candy) to hand out for such an occasion.

a church at the bottom of the hill

Don asked a group of children the name of the hill when we returned to the car (Kilimamoto, as on the church - mountain of fire) and they said that the crater had last shown signs of volcanic life in 1977.
