Details for: Katwe-Kikorongo
This lake-filled crater is part of the Katwe-Kikorongo volcanic field, which stretches from the NE shore of Lake Edward to the western shore of Lake George. It is the most extensive of a series of volcanic fields in the Western Rift Valley of Uganda containing carbonatitic tuff cones and maars, some of which contain lakes. Local folk tales suggest that volcanism in the Katwe-Kikorongo area has continued into historical times. Photo by Nelson Eby (University of Massachusetts).
