It is located in the Gregory Rift, the eastern branch of the East African Rift. The lake lays at the foot of the Ol Doinyo Lengai, an active volcano. Lake Natron is quite shallow, less than three meters deep, and varies in width depending on its water level. The lake is 57 kilometers long and 22 kilometers wide. The area receives irregular seasonal rainfall, mainly between December and May. The temperatures at the lake are often over 40 ° C. As the fresh water evaporates in the lake, water with high concentrations of salt minerals such as sodium and trona remains. The alkalinity of the lake can reach a pH level of more than 12. Special bacteria and blue algae thrive in this environment and form an ideal breeding ground for the life of birds. Such halophilic organisms include some cyano bacteria that, like plants, produce their own food through photosynthesis. The red pigment in those cyano bacteria produces the deep red colors of the lake’s waters and the orange colors in the shallow areas. Salt-loving microorganisms living there are coloring the alkali salt crust on the surface of the lake is red or pink. Accommodation: Africa Safari Lake Natron Mount Oldonyo Lengai This active volcano was named the mountain of God’ by the local Maasai tribe, after they witnessed an eruption, its last eruption happened in 2008. It is regarded as divine by the Maasai tribe and they go to this mountain to pray for rain, children etc. The lava of Ol Doinyo Lengai is unique compared to other volcanoes. Due to this unusual composition, the lava erupts at relatively low temperatures of approximately 510 °C and is the fastest flowing lava recorded. The temperature is so low that the molten lava appears black in sunlight, rather than having the red glow common to most lavas. This lava is susceptible to rapid wearing out , it quickly turns from black to gray in color resulting in a unique landscape. Accommodation: Africa Safari Lake Natron
