Background:

The late-Plestocene to Holocene Bunyaruguru volcanic field, also known as the Kichwambe volcanic field, straddles the equator along the eastern side of the Western Rift Valley, south of Lake George. The Bunyaruguru volcanic field contains more than 130 maars, 27 of which contain lakes with water ranging from fresh to saline. Friable calcareous volcanic tuffs are inter-bedded with Pleistocene and Recent sediments. Only a few foiditic lava flows are found in the volcanic field. Although no dated eruptions are known, Reece (1955) noted that volcanic activity probably continued into historical times.
