Lake Momela


Momela Lakes is a group of shallow alkaline lakes that are fed by underground streams. They differ in mineral contents and algae that cause the colours of their water also to differ slightly.

The mineral and algae present in these lakes attract and support many water birds including flamingos, Egyptian goose, and fowls.

Among the lakes in Momela is lake Rishetani, which is green in colour, Great Momela Lake with a variety of birds. There are also Tulusia and Lekandiro Lakes, as well as the Small Momela Lake, in which groups of hippopotamus can also be seen. The lakes are within the Arusha National Park Safari.
