„Northern Tanzania, Tanzania (Nigel Pavitt)“

from the gallery of John Warburton-Lee Photography

Lake Natron in northern Tanzania is one of the most alkaline of the Rift system. As its waters evaporate in the intense heat, sodium sesquicarbonate, known as trona or natron, solidifies to resemble giant coral heads in brightly coloured water. Visible beyond the lake is Shompole volcano, a dormant volcano, situated on the border of Kenya and Tanzania.
