Photographer's Note

Sun rising on Manyara Lake, one of the national natural park in Tanzania.

Lake Manyara is one of the many alkaline lakes of the Great Rift Valley. It was formed abut three million years ago and is quite shallow, with an average depth of about three metres. The lake hosts large fish populations, notably tilapia and catfish and attracts hundreds of birds species, especially breathtaking flocks of flamingoes.

Although it is Tanzania’s smallest park, Lake Manyara is one of the most diverse reserves in the country. The beautiful Lake Manyara covers two thirds of the park, while the rest consists of steep mountainside, swamps, dense woodlands, open grassy areas and hot springs.

PS : this is the 1st time I am uploading scanned pictures so I hope the quality is good enough. If not, WS are welcomed :)
