Lake Natron in Tanzania is one of the most inhospitable vicinities in the world. It is almost impossible for any life-form to survive in it. The temperature of the lake is 120-degree, attracting cyanobacteria to live in it, hence making the lake red and orange in color.

Home to 2.5 Million Flamingos
The most amazing part about this inhospitable area is home to 2.5 million flamingos and is considered as a breeding ground for the flamingos.
Bringing Fresh Water to the Lake Is Highly Dangerous
Bringing fresh water to the lake would damage the ecological balance of the lake. Many attempts to bring fresh water to the Natron Lake have been protested against by Tanzania. Freshwater would mean that salinity of Lake Natron would decrease, hence the cyanobacteria will also decrease leading the Flamingos to lose their home.
