Ondiri Swamp the the only Quaking Bog in Kenya
Ondiri swamp is a kilometer from Kikuyu Town in Kiambu County.
It was named Old Lake during the colonial times but local Kikuyu people corrupted the phrase to Ondiri.
Ondiri swamp serves as an underground outlet to Lake Naivasha and that makes it a perennial bog.
According to hydrologists, the swamp, which stands on a 30-hectare piece of land, is 10 kilometres deep.
Birdlife is prolific in a good day you may record over 70 species from water birds such Common Moorhen Black Crake, Little Bittern, Kingfishers, Herons, Water Rails, and other terrestrial species
Story of a woman, we met at the swamp and lives in Kikuyu town, she says she is terrified of the Ondiri Swamp.
