As explosion craters, formed by the expulsion of gas and steam, no lava flow is associated with them, but their formation was accompanied by a vast belching of volcanic ash and dust, which settled over the whole area as a rich, alkaline volcanic tuff. Such craters are considered by volcanologists to usually precede volcanic activity proper, but this second phase has yet to take place, and perhaps it never will. But the area is by no means volcanically inert, and in 1898 when the explorers Grogan and Sharp travelled along the east shore of Lake Edward, at its southern end near to the Ntungwe River, they noted several geysers, shooting "vast jets of steam into the air" (Grogan and Sharp, 1900).
In June 1889 the Mweya Peninsula had 81 huts and was "rich in sheep and goats". But although it had managed to escape the ravages of the Warasura, its circumstances changed rapidly. Two years after Stanley's visit, Lugard, who camped for one night on the Mweya plateau, was to describe it as: "deserted villages surrounded by hedges of cactus (sic) marked the dwellings of the people before the advent of Kabba-Rega and his guns" (Lugard, 1893). But the advent of the Warasura had been some 20 years before, and it was probably Lugard's arrival which had caused the inhabitants to desert the area.
It was chosen as an area of prime importance for study due to its high density of waterbuck, its isolated formation, and freedom from interference. ater, except for the narrow isthmus of Kanyeseswa to the north-east. West of the 33 m fault which divides the area into two, almost equal, halves, the land is low-lying, at an average height of 15 m above lake level. The fault rises steeply from these flats to the eastern plateau, where Lugard camped, and rises almost 50 m above lake level, at its highest point.
