Lorian Swamp 1/2 by Tripoto

Lorian Swamp

Kinza Ben Ali
Over 200 km long and 25 km wide, this swamp is fed by Ewaso Ngiro river that runs through the Samburu National Park in Kenya. Although, the swamp's area varies according to the amount of rainfall in a year. Due to the prevailing hostile environment in the country, the swamp is not well protected and is infested with malarial mosquitoes during rains. However it is the watering hole for a large number of animals in Samburu, not to mention the crocodiles.
