There are more than 10 active geysers around Lake Bogoria. One of the largest geysers here is Koibobei Geyser reaching up to 4.6 m high.

This geyser is located in a larger group of hot springs. In this group are located two more geysers which are less impressive - 0.3 - 0.7 m high.

Koibobei Geyser is active only when its vent is exposed. This geyser is located close to the lake and when the level of lake rises, it is inundated and does not "work" anymore.

Koibobei geysers have not formed sinter or travertine around them.
