Background:

The Katwe-Kikorongo volcanic field, stretching from the NE shore of Lake Edward to the western shore of Lake George, south of the Ruwenzori Range, is the most extensive of a series of volcanic fields in the Western Rift Valley of Uganda. The volcanic field, straddling the equator, covers an area of about 180 sq km and contains a group of about 80 foiditic tuff cones and maars, some of which are filled by lakes. Lake Katwe is a shallow 3-km-long body of water that occupies two of three intersecting craters immediately NE of Lake Edward. Local folk tales suggest that volcanism in the Katwe-Kikorongo area has continued into historical times.
