Photo of the Day – Lake Magadi

Lake Magadi, Kenya
June 2007

Deep in the heart of Southern Kenya’s Maasai land is the unearthly Lake Magadi.  Lake Magadi is a saline, alkaline lake which during its dry season can be 75-80% percent covered by soda. The lake is home to a single species of fish but also serves as a nesting area for thousands of flamingos. At one time this lake and neighboring Lake Natron (Tanzania) formed a single body of water known as Lake Oloronga.
