Elementaita Lake, Kenya,
Lake Elemantaita is located between Lake Naivasha and Lake Nakuru in the Rift Valley of Kenya. IThe salt lake is known for its rich avifauna, among other huge concentrations of Greater and Lesser flamingos. The flamingos, however, have severely declined after the Tilipia fish has been introduced. The lake is very shallow (less than 1m deep). In dry periods trona-encrusted mudflats appear. This evaporite mineral is often used for sodium carbonate production.
