Lake Natron , Tanzania

I had the occasion to visit Tanzania in the first half of January 2023. Low season and green in several areas.

First time visit to Lake Natron, a unique place with ten thousands of lesser flamingos.


The largest concentration of millions of flamingos from August, when the flamingos start to gather at the lake and continue to amass until October.

Incredible to note that 75% of the world’s population of lesser flamingos were born at this lake.

Wonderful views also of the Ol Doinyo Lengai vulcano in the background.
The name means ‘Mountain of God’ in the Maasai language.
