Tanzania is rich in nature, unique ecosystems, unparalleled flora and fauna and remote and uncontaminated places.
It is an immense country and hides treasures that the adventurous traveler absolutely must visit. One of these places is certainly Lake Natron.
AN INCREDIBLE PATH
He journey to the lake is an adventure in itself. It begins by travelling along a dirt road, a feature that adds a touch of authenticity and ruggedness to the experience. This route is not like the paved city roads, but rather a natural track that winds through the wilderness.
Along the way, the car juggles stones and unevenness, and the surrounding landscape seems to merge into one beautiful picture.
The road passes through the Great Rift Valley, one of the natural wonders of the world, known for its fascinating geography and rich biodiversity. The valley, a huge geological depression, stretches for thousands of kilometres across several countries, offering an impressive spectacle of mountains, rivers, lakes and plains.
Along the way, travellers can observe a variety of ecosystems, from tropical forests to arid deserts.Torna su
THE MAASAI OF THE SACRED MOUNTAIN
Ancestral land of the Maasai, the area is also home to their sacred mountain, Ol Doinyo Lengai, which shares uniqueness and physical characteristics with the lake.
UNIQUE COLORS AND ENVIRONMENT
The lake has a reddish color due to some special bacteria with whitish streaks due to the high concentration of sodium.
A hostile and therefore uncontaminated environment. Few creatures can live there also due to the high temperature of the water.Torna su
IMMENSE PINK FLOCKS
Among these creatures there are the lesser flamingos which nest here to protect their offspring from hostile predators and which get their characteristic pink color from an algae found in the lake.
ADVENTURE ADVENTURE ADVENTURE
To reach the lake you have to walk down a hill while balancing on bundles of grass bent over the water by the wind, but what you see is incredible.
Flocks of flamingos walk or fly at the edge of the water, strong in the protective stratum corneum that covers their legs and beaks. The only ones who can walk in water that can reach sixty degrees.
The show is almost surreal and definitely worth a visit.Torna su
THE BEAUTY OF NATURE
Definitely a trip out of the ordinary, certainly a place that is not easy in many ways, but certainly a real, uncontaminated place, where you can fully appreciate the strength and beauty of nature.
