If a darted animal fell among others, their first reaction was to leap away; but then they would return, staring and sniffing inquisitively. This, of course, was interrupted by my arrival.

Another series occurs to the east, in the Chambura Game Reserve, outside of the Park (Fig. 11). ; and representing a tardy protest at the Rwenzoris' uplift. 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.
