Summary:

Magadi ward lies in the Great Rift Valley, about 120 km South West of Nairobi at a latitude of 605m (2000 feet) above sea level. Lake Magadi consists of a deep crystalline bed of Trona (the name given to the naturally occurring solid mineral content), which is a mixture of sodium sesquicarbonate, sodium chloride, other sodium salts and clays, together with a small amount of organic matter. The Trona deposit is up to 30 meters thick, and the surface of the lake covers about 80sq.Kms (Omollo, 2013).
