This lake-filled crater is part of the Katwe-Kikorongo volcanic field that 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 cones and maars, some of which contain lakes. Local stories suggest that volcanism in the area has continued into historical times.
