Lake Natron in Tanzania is known for its deep red hue. The lake is part of the East African Rift Valley, and gets its color from the algae that live on salt in the water from nearby volcanoes.

The water's red hue is due to algae that live on salts spewed from nearby volcanoes. The East African Rift Valley system begins in northern Syria and extends across East Africa into Mozambique.
