Camping
We camped for two nights about 15 meters from the edge of Mbwelesu crater with its lava lake below. The sounds at night: the wind, the constantly pouring rain against the tent walls, and the lava lake rumbling and bursting ~350 meters below.

Man, very impressive idea to bivouac there, I suppose the feeling was absolutely incredible, I've never seen anything like that.

Thanks, Tomek! It was definitely a great experience. The first night we had a little stream of rainwater running through the front of the tent, but a quickly built small "lava dam" did the trick. It was amazing how much water can collect on the few square meters upslope from the tent towards the crater in the heavy tropical rain.
