We did a walk round the lake for 2 hrs. We didn't see a great deal of wildlife, though what we saw was good.

This is a moderate 3 hour hike around the rim of the crater, where you can see the lovely green water of the lake below. There were plenty of interesting birds, especially at the water's edge.
